Under the motto “Celebrating the future”, we celebrated the 50th anniversary of Paderborn University together in 2022 – with each other at the university, but also with the public, the citizens of our region and the City of Paderborn!
A colourful programme of numerous events took you along on an exciting journey through the UPB cosmos that year. In addition to the five central anniversary events – the ceremonial opening of the anniversary year, the UPB 50 Family Festival for all university employees, an official reception in the Town Hall, the academic conference “Data Society. Opportunities – Responsibility – Innovations” and a closing event on campus for students lasting several days – the "50 Mosaics" represented a special highlight of the anniversary year.
Under the title “50 Mosaics”, we made the diversity of Paderborn University visible to the public with a special series of events: throughout the anniversary year, we presented varied programme for young and old that gave you a first-hand experience of our research, teaching, study and campus life. The creative minds behind these events were our academics, students and employees.
The entire programme was rounded off with further cultural events such as a 70s musical staged especially for the anniversary year or the lecture series “50 years of Paderborn University” and many more.
Further information and an overview of the extensive programme of events as well as Impressions can be found on the anniversary website: www.upb50.de.
Under the Hashtag #WirFeiernZukunft, the anniversary was also reported on the official channels of Paderborn University (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube).
