Welcome to a new decade! At the beginning of 2020 we as a university look toward to the major topics of the coming ten years. What will the world look like? How will we live? Which solutions will we find for the pressing issues of our time? It is the nature of institutions like the CAU to regularly want and have to think beyond the end of the day. This is how new scientific analyses and ideas arise, along with innovative social concepts which will hopefully make our lives that bit better in the future. To do this, we compete with the best in our departments and work together with other institutions. This competition requires the ability to look ahead and imagine the world of tomorrow - and reveal new ways of getting there. In order to contemplate and create a fair future that is worth living in, we need the close contact and exchange with those people who this future is being made for. The CAU will expand and strengthen its dialogue with society and between the generations over the coming years. unizeit will continue to play an important role in this respect. On that note - I hope you enjoy reading the articles in this latest edition.
