Traditionally, universities are structured by the subdivision in faculties and departments. But these traditional structures are also faced with a shift in current demands placed on research and teaching. The Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZiF) will host an international conference on the developmental prospects of universities with a strong orientation towards interdisciplinary approaches on 12-13 April 2012. The focus will be on experiences from renowned national and international universities that have already implemented interdisciplinary concepts and structures in research and teaching.

The main conference language will be English.
