After three years of intensive preparation, it is finally time - on 1 and 2 April, 21 international evaluators will be conducting a detailed examination of Kiel University's ideas and concepts for a modern University of Excellence. We have prepared ourselves very well for the inspection. Thousands of hours of thinking, discussion and significant investment for the future by the university and the state have flowed into the CAU's application to become a University of Excellence with the title KIEL UNIVERSITY INTERFACES. It was intensive, arduous, sometimes exhausting - but ultimately hopefully also worth the effort. Around 130 university members, state representatives and members of affiliated institutes and facilities will represent our future vision together at the start of April.
If we are successful, we can continue on Kiel University's successful path of lived interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary science with great momentum. The chances don't look bad. We don't have to be afraid of the comparison with the other universities' concepts. You can read exactly how we want to continue developing the university if we are successful in this focal edition. Fingers crossed that Schleswig-Holstein manages to pass the sparks of our enthusiasm onto the evaluators. I hope you enjoy reading the unizeit articles!
