Knowledge Transfer

Participation in formats of the university

The center has already participated in many formats of the university, including the design of a Night of the Profs in the Staatstheater, a lecture series at the University in the City Hall, program sections of the Kinderuni and the Wissenschaftsmarkt. The ZIS has its own cooperations with the CineMayence, the antiquarian at the Ballplatz, the Staatstheater and the Frankfurter Hof.

Development of own formats

In addition, ZIS has developed several specially designed formats to convey public knowledge but also to promote knowledge-based understanding in social interaction. These include, for example, the cultural week Kültür alakart in the city center in the Frankfurter Hof and the long-standing organized intercultural festival for the students of the JGU on the Mainz Campus.


Night of the Profs

The format of the Night of the Profs brings science to the Mainz State Theater, in short lectures the content of scientific research is conveyed to the public.
