March 2022 Issue
Creating knowledge together
This issue of 'forschung leben' focuses on the interdependence of science and society. One focus is on citizen-centered research at our Real-World Laboratories. In an interview, Vice Rector Prof. Peter Middendorf reports on how the University of Stuttgart is advancing knowledge and technology transfer, and in a guest article Jens Rehländer explains why science must learn to become more combative.
The subject this year was inspired by Science Year 2022: "Science and society mutually benefit from interaction with each other". And with this in mind, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and Wissenschaft im Dialog have given the Year of Science 2022 the title "Nachgefragt!" (Participate!) and are focusing on getting citizens more involved in scientific research. The interaction between science and society is also anchored in the University of Stuttgart's mission statement.
