The Humboldt Geography of Knowledge is online!

Since mid-December, visualizations of the Humboldt network have been available on the AvH website under the new brand "Humboldt Geography of Knowledge".

The site invites you to visually explore the global Humboldt network: You can browse the world maps for world regions and continents (Where do Humboldtians work? Where did the Foundation most recently acquire new Humboldtians?) and take a closer look at four regions. Here you can also leaf through portraits of Humboldtians - all of them impressive personalities who underline the important contributions that the Humboldt Network makes to international understanding and networking of cutting-edge research.
