The ArchipelagoLab was initiated by Prof. Dr. Christoph Brunner, and led by him until 2023. It is affiliated with the Dekanat and advised by Prof. Dr. Roberto Nigro, Prodekan Research.

The Lab is a physical space inviting especially, but not only, students and PhD candidates of the Fakultäten Bildung, Kultur und Nachhaltigkeit, and a network and infrastructure which can support and advise you as well.
If you would like to be an active part of the ArchipelagoLab, just join our next Labmeeting or contact us at

Please, in the subject line, indicate when your request should be answered the latest while keeping in mind that it will be coming from a student assistant with an finite number of working hours.
