In the alliance for science, partners from science, business and the city are working for the expansion of Münster as a science and business location.
Research at the University
The objective of the strategic alliance is to develop Münster as a leading location as well as a location for science, research and development in order to also be able to score when it comes to international competition between cities. In addition to this, the aim is to expand scientific dialogue with the inhabitants of Münster as well as to communicate science and research in practical ways.
The network node of this cooperation is the Strategy Committee Science. Head: Prof. Dr. Norbert Sachser
Under the motto of “dialogue for peace”, science and the history of the city are combined with contemporary and future issues. Alongside a week of events entitled “Münster 1648: Dialoge zum Frieden” [Münster 1648: Dialogues for peace], Münster occupies itself with current topics from conflict and crisis areas and, in doing so, increases perception of Münster in the context of the Treaty of Westphalia.
Head of the Working Group Münster 1648 - Dialogues for Peace: Prof. Dr. Alfons Kenkmann
Münster's universities have a national and international reputation in their research on sustainability. This know-how in science is combined with the consistent implementation of sustainable development by the city of Münster. Münster was named "Germany's Most Sustainable Large City 2019" for this.
