The program consists of a series of seminars, excursions and events. All seminars will take place in the Commerzbibliothek (Library of Commerce), part of Hamburg’s Chamber of Commerce. With its central location, historical significance and enviable views of Hamburg’s wonderful neo-renaissance town hall, we hope it will be the perfect location to enjoy what promises to be a fascinating program.
