Forum Wissen


The Forum Wissen (Knowledge Forum) will be an interface between academia and society. Here it will be conveyed to a broad audience how knowledge is created. The museum will unite the activities "collecting, preserving, developing", "researching and teaching" and "showing and imparting", which will be connected institutionally and spatially under one roof. At the Forum Wissen, research and teaching will be carried out on and with objects; collections will be catalogued/developed, digitised and restored. Visitors will gain insights into current research and teaching. The Forum Wissen will thus simultaneously fulfil university and public tasks by creating the setting and providing the impetus to use the academic collections of the University of Göttingen for interdisciplinary research and teaching as well as for science communication.

Centre for Collection Development

The Centre for Collection Development is responsible for promoting the use of the academic collections in research and teaching as well as for the external presentation of the University.
