• A fresh perspective
    The new uni'kon #77 is here

    Taking a fresh perspective may also open up new areas in research: See plastic not as an environmental burden, but as a sustainable material. View the settlement communes of the early socialist movement not as failed projects, but as designs for the future. Perceive charisma not as a magical ability, but as a status-dependent attribution. Understand death not as a nothingness to fear, but instead as nothing to be afraid of.

    In the current issue of uni'kon, we present exemplary projects at the University of Konstanz that open up new perspectives.

  • University of Excellence Konstanz

    The University of Konstanz has once again been selected as one of eleven Universities of Excellence or consortia in Germany.

    It has been successful in all funding lines of both the German Excellence Initiative and the Excellence Strategy since 2007. Since 1 January 2019, two new Konstanz-based Clusters of Excellence are being funded through the Excellence Strategy, the follow-up programme to the Excellence Initiative: the “Centre for the Advanced Study of Collective Behaviour” and “The Politics of Inequality: Perceptions, Participation and Policies”. On 19 July 2019, the university’s concept “University of Konstanz – creative.together” was selected for funding in the Universities of Excellence funding line.

    Internationalization is key for us. This is why we promote international cooperation in research and student mobility, recruit excellent international (early career) researchers and work to increase our international visibility.

    By successfully participating in the European Universities Initiative, we have taken another important step towards a joint European Education Area: Within the university network European Reform University Alliance, learning, teaching and researching across borders will become a reality.
