Forum Wissen

The Forum Wissen (Knowledge Forum) is an interface between academia and society. It conveys knowledge creation to a broad audience. The museum unites the activities "collecting, preserving, developing", "researching and teaching" and "showing and imparting", which are now connected institutionally and spatially under one roof. At the Forum Wissen, research and teaching are carried out on and with objects; collections are and will be catalogued/developed, digitised and restored. Visitors gain insights into current research and teaching. The Forum Wissen thus simultaneously fulfils 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.
