Insights into the Worlds of Research at Bielefeld University

As part of the lecture series titled “Transcending Boundaries: Insights into the Worlds of Research at Bielefeld University,” the university’s wide-ranging research activities in the humanities, natural sciences, social sciences, and technology were presented and discussed. In addition to these four ‘worlds’ of research – the “Globalizing World,” the “Material World,” the “Mathematical World,” and the “Socio-Technical World” – research at Bielefeld University also encompasses educational research, and it will also include medical research in the future.

The kick-off event for this lecture series was held on May 15th. It included short talks and an accompanying discussion on the topic of “The Globalizing World,” which explored the opportunities and risks of a global world. A total of six lectures were held through December 2019.
