The Fellows’ partners and children are an important part of the community that forms in the course of the academic year in Grunewald district. So the Kolleg offers accompanying partners, too, the support of the Library, the IT Services, and the institute’s other services and the installation of a workplace. Partners are equally welcome at the Colloquia, lectures, meals, concerts, and events that are organized for the Fellows in and around Berlin.
The Kolleg is also happy to help in mediating contacts to other research facilities and/or institutions in Berlin.
Special attention is given to Fellows who come to Berlin with their children. The Fellow Services help Fellows who stay for the whole year look for suitable schools and kindergartens. They look for babysitters for all childern and organize childcare during the Thursday dinners.
