The  participants  presented  and  discussed  their  ongoing  work  on  a  variety  of  topics  related  to  the history of medicinal substances from an intercultural perspective. Different approaches and different methods of historical analysis were presented and compared between projects and cultures. The ultimate goal was to sharpen their perspective on a global history of medicine.
