we hope it's still in time to wish you all a happy new year. There's already a lot going on at Mecila. We are glad for the impressive number of applications we received for our first Fellowship Calls from all around the world. Besides that, we're already preparing our first events of the year, one in Berlin, another in São Paulo, both strongly addressing Mecila's research theme for the year: conservatisms. Judging from the start, 2020 seems promising.
