Adopt a Gnome!

Dear Colleagues,

hopefully you managed to marvel at ‘Heinz’, the German Semester mascot on the roundabout in the JRC at least once.

More than 140 different gnomes designed by your German colleagues have been braving the weather there since July. Now some of them are eager to move to a new home. Therefore we have created a catalogue with all the gnomes that are going to be auctioned. Click here to see the catalogue.

There are two categories, because some of them are more exquisite as far as the material and also the artistic input are concerned. The entry price will be 20 €. For the special editions we are asking for 30 €.

In case there are two persons interested in the same one, Heinz will go to the higher bidder. ☺

If you are interested in one of our mascots, please mail to movieriddle@german-semester-ispra-2020.eu mentioning the title of the gnome.

Maybe you’ve always wanted to coach a soccer team? The FC Bayern as well as half of the Borussia Dortmund team are waiting for a new training ground! The transfer market for single players is still open too.

The gnomes will move around the middle of December. We are pretty sure they will find their way to you despite Corona, even across borders.

The proceeds from the auction will go to the German Semester.

Thank you for your support!
