Santander supports International Winter School at the University of Kyoto

  • Outstanding Young Researchers meet at Kyoto University scholarships across the country.

Mönchengladbach, 5th March 2015-. Outstanding young researchers from Asia, Latin America and Europe will gather at Japan’s Kyoto University from 9 to 18 March 2015 to attend Heidelberg University’s Santander International Winter School. The winter school, entitled “What Is Caesar’s, What Is God’s? A transcultural perspective on the legitimation of the political and religious spheres”, is being funded by Santander Universitäten and co-coordinated by Kyoto University. Members of the Cluster of Excellence “Asia and Europe in a Global Context” at Heidelberg University designed the content.

Santander supports the Winter School at the University of Heidelberg through Santander Universitäten a part of Santander Universidades, a corporate area of Banco Santander.  Within the cooperation between Santander and the University of Heidelberg the university gets subsidies to organize international summer and winter schools with participants from Latin America, Asia and Europe. “Both the summer and the winter schools support the mobility of young researchers at a high rate. They constitute a scientific bridge for the junior researchers and so serve  the expansion of excellent researcher networks”, explained Udo Schweers, director Santander Universitäten Germany. In the context of the international engagement of Santander Universidades the  internationalization of universities  and the international exchange of science and teachings is a central concern. 

The 20 PhD candidates from Brazil, Chile, Germany, Greece, Great Britain, India, Italy and Singapore will explore the concept of religion from a transcultural perspective. The gathering will give them an opportunity to exchange views with renowned researchers from a number of universities.
