International strategy conferences
With international conference formats, Universität Hamburg—University of Excellence strives to deepen exchange with major players in the international academic system, politics, and civil society. Currently, there are 4 formats: Global University Leaders Council Hamburg (GUC), Hamburger Horizonte, Hamburg-Vigoni Forum, and Hamburg Forum for Global Science and Policy.
Global University Leaders Council Hamburg
Every 2 years, university presidents from around the world engage in debate. Their primary goal is to actively shape the process of worldwide university development. The council is a joint initiative by the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK), the Körber-Stiftung, and Universität Hamburg.
This forum seeks innovative ways to inspire discussion between researchers and policy makers. The conference series poses the question, What holds Europe together? In addition to the University, the Europa-Kolleg Hamburg, the Institute for Peace Research and Security Policy (IFSH), and the German-Italian Villa Vigoni center for dialog coordinate the forum.
Hamburger Horizonte 2021
This annual conference brings together researchers and experts from the fields of politics, business, and culture as well as the Hamburg public. The goal is open exchange on social topics. The conference series takes place in cooperation with the Hamburg Institute of Advanced Study (HIAS) and the Körber-Stiftung.
Hamburg Forum for Global Science and Policy
The Hamburg Forum for Global Science and Policy aims to create new perspectives for future global academic systems in times of complex crises. The format is aimed at representatives of universities and research institutions, academic management, foundations, and academic policy, and includes public lectures and discussion events, as well as workshop disucssions and workshops with a small number of participants.
