Developing new ways of thinking by mutual understanding - that is the basic idea behind the Poznan Days at Kiel University (CAU). A delegation of more than 60 academics and students from Adam Mickiewicz University (UAM) in Poznań, Poland, visit the CAU from 2 to 4 November 2022. An extensive programme for all interested parties from prehistory and early history to botany and law will complete the visit.

A partnership agreement has linked Adam Mickiewicz University (UAM) in Poznań with CAU since 1984. However, contacts and also exchange activities began as early as the 1970s and therefore both universities can look back on almost 40 years of joint exchange relations. The University Days, which combine science with culture, society and personal contacts, are intended to make the cooperation between the two universities even closer and more intensive. Furthermore, visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the study and research programmes offered at the respective host university and also gain an insight into the student and academic exchange between the partner universities. It is particularly important to give young academics from both universities the opportunity to work together as well as to get to know each other.

Members of the Cluster of Excellence ROOTS will contribute to the programme of the Poznan Days, including Jutta Kneisel, Walter Dörfler, Ingo Feeser, Hendrik Raese and ROOTS spokesperson Johannes Müller. Two workshops will deal with topics of the Cluster of Excellence:

Society facing changes. regions on the southwest Baltic between 2500 - 1500 BC on 03.11, 14-17 h (Leibnizstraße 3, R123)
Palaeo-environmental Workshop: Lake coring, sampling and interdisciplinary analyses for palaeoecological reconstruction on 03.11, 9-13 h (Leibnizstraße 3, R123).
