What is distinctive about the University of Freiburg? What should research and instruction focus on? What guiding principles can and should hold true for all? These are topics that concern everyone: the workshop tackles a new one year after year.
The Innovation and Dialog Workshop
of the University of Freiburg invites experts from all faculties and disciplines to contribute their own perspectives on central questions concerning the future
of the university and to develop new ones together. We also welcome the participation of external partners, such as entrepreneurs, managers, politicians, artists, or scholars. Close moderation and evaluation of these workshops allows us to filter out strategies to further consolidate the university’s leading position
in the 21st century.
The first Innovation and Dialog Workshop was held in 2007, on the 550th anniversary of the University of Freiburg. Further workshops have since been organized about once a year. Responsible for planning, organizing, and evaluating the Innovation and Dialog Workshop, which also goes by the name “Humboldt Laboratory,” are the head of administration and the Office of Knowledge Management.
