Connecting Creative Minds – Your contribution to the University of Freiburg’s strategic focus

Following the enriching conversations and discussions about the University of Freiburg’s strategic focus with members of all faculties, it is our goal now to continue this communication. Therefore we opened up a new project “Connecting Creative Minds” in our Dialogue Workshop (Dialogwerkstatt), that provides you with general information about the strategy and allows you to give us your feedback in this regard.

We will collect and thematically sort your contributions and introduce them to the relevant working groups. Please use this opportunity to help shape the future of our university.
