Brown Bag Seminars Print

NCCR Trade Regulation Brown Bag Seminars are informal 45-minute presentations, given by external or in-house researchers. The presentations are followed by a 45-minute Q&A session and/or group discussion. Everyone is welcome to join and, in general, it is not necessary to sign up. The Brown Bag concept comes from the US; it means that people bring their own lunch (in a brown bag...) and eat it during the presentation.

The Brown Bag Seminars take place at the WTI on a regular basis on Wednesdays from 12.15–13.45. 


Please contact
for more information or if you want to sign up for the Brown Bag Seminar mailing list.

You can also fill in the form
 and send it per post or fax it to NCCR Trade Regulation to sign up for the mailing list.
