Paderborn University is a place of encounters and discourse. In order to open up new perspectives and provide food for thought, we promote exchange between science, business, society, and politics through a variety of communication and event formats – in the region and beyond.
Paderborn University seeks to engage in discourse with the public through numerous initiatives. This is why we regularly open our doors to external visitors.
We frequently invite the public to attend lecture series, to explore our laboratories, and to learn about and exchange ideas on current topics in lectures. Representatives from politics, business, and the practical field are also welcomed as guests, in order to facilitate eye-level conversations in panel discussions. We also offer workshops for children and young people who want to get a taste of university life before they leave school and become active researchers.
