Current edition: We are the Future

Fast-forward to the future: We would like to know what the University of Mannheim will look like in a few decades. Even though we cannot fast-forward time, in this edition we take a closer look at the university’s young people—because, after all, they are the future. We met inspiring young people and listened to their stories and future plans. Because the future has long been in the making, here at the University of Mannheim and everywhere committed young people come together. Read on and learn about the future!
