The seminar series “Academia meets Industry” aims at stimulating interdisciplinary discussions between university members and high profile managers from industry and public health organizations. It addresses the complex challenges in science, management, politics and society which are promoted by both university and industry in a concerted action. At these seminars the practical perspective of the guest speakers encounters the education and research priorities of the university and thus allows an unprecedented dialogue on chances and risks of current and future research developments in life sciences.
