With the FORUM SCIENTIARUM the University of Tübingen created an establishment, which promotes the communication between the various scientific disciplines and invites them to collaborate on finding the answers to factual issues, which are brought about by the natural sciences and the humanities. Projects that support this collaboration are the main focus. For this reason, the FORUM SCIENTIARUM would like to emphasize the strength of Tübingen as a largely diversified university with a first-class level of excellence in the natural sciences as well as in the humanities.
Since the middle of the 19th century, we have noticed a rapid development of the sciences, which continues to advance well into the present and lead to a differentiation between a great number of disciplines. This makes the understanding of something outside of one’s field of study more difficult and as a result, urgently requires the communication between the different scientific fields. The FORUM SCIENTIARUM makes this exchange between the scientific disciplines possible.
The University of Tübingen is very thankful to the Udo Keller Foundation-Forum Humanum, the Klett Foundation and the Evangelical regional church of Württemberg for their continuing support of the FORUM SCIENTIARUM.
I invite you to participate in the communication between the various scientific disciplines and support the work of the FORUM SCIENTIARUM.
With kind regards,
Professor Dr. Bernd Engler, President
