KLI Colloquia are informal, public talks that are followed by extensive dissussions. Speakers are KLI fellows or visiting researchers who are interested in presenting their work to an interdisciplinary audience and discussing it in a wider research context. We offer three types of talks:

1. Current Research Talks. KLI fellows or visiting researchers present and discuss their most recent research with the KLI fellows and the Vienna scientific community.

2. Future Research Talks. Visiting researchers present and discuss future projects and ideas togehter with the KLI fellows and the Vienna scientific community.

3. Professional Developmental Talks. Experts about research grants and applications at the Austrian and European levels present career opportunities and strategies to late-PhD and post-doctoral researchers.

  • The presentation language is English.
  • If you are interested in presenting your current or future work at the KLI, please contact the Scientific Director or the Executive Manager.

Online Event
Organized by KLI & EASPLS Consortium
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we decided to cancel this year's European Advanced Seminar in the Philosophy of Life Sciences with the title “Dealing with Complexity in the Life Sciences”. The seminar was supposed to take place Sep.7-11, 2020 at the Konrad Lorenz Institute for Evolution and Cognition Research (KLI), close to Vienna. We also announce that the next in-person EASPLS will take place in 2022 at the KLI. 
However, the EASPLS Consortium is committed to support early career researchers working in the philosophy of the life sciences in a different way. Between September 7 and September 11, each of the instructors will offer a mentoring session of two hours each. Priority will be given to those who have applied for EASPLS 2020. If seats are still available, it will be possible for other early career scholars to sign inWe will circulate information about the details of the mentoring sessions (exact times, topics, how to register, specific topics etc.) before June 30.
The instructors who will be offering mentoring sessions are:
  • Giovanni Boniolo (University of Ferrara)
  • Guido Caniglia (KLI Klosterneuburg)
  • John Dupré (University of Exeter)
  • Sara Green (University of Copenhagen)
  • Philippe Huneman (CNRS/Paris-Sorbonne University)
