Plenary and Social Program

At the GESIS Summer School, we offer a plenary and social program every week.

On Mondays, we officially open the Summer School week. Traditionally, the president of GESIS, Prof. Dr. Christof Wolf, opens the first week of the Summer School. The other weeks are usually opened by other GESIS researchers. After the presentations, participants have an opportunity to mingle with the lecturers, other participants and members of GESIS staff while enjoying some fingerfood and a glass of Kölsch or a soft drink.

On Thursdays, we have an informal get-together. All lecturers and participants are invited to join us to try out specialities from Cologne and enjoy the atmosphere in a typical Cologne brewery restaurant.
