Each year re:work invites 10—15 researchers from different academic disciplines and nationalities and offers them a forum for the discussion of central questions and thereby promotes exchange between established and young academics. re:work organises workshops, international conferences and summer schools and fellows are given the opportunity to discuss their research with various institutions in Berlin.
