Academic Forum

About Academic Forum

Academic Forum is the place for exchanging and closely studying current topics that matter in science, society and people's lives.

Basic premise

the university is more than a place where academic knowledge and skills are developed. Academic training entails more than just a transfer of knowledge. Preparing young people for responsible positions in society is at least as important: giving them an eye for the public good and a sense of who they are and what they stand for.


What does such a basic premise entail?

  • An independent and interdisciplinary look at current social issues.
  • A look that leads to a deeper understanding of the world and man's relationship to the world.
  • Fostering talents across the board.
  • Providing ample scope for an encounter of different cultures and religions, for reflection and for contemplating life.
