Interdisciplinary meetings in the fields of medicine, bioscience, as well as environmental, climate and energy research have been in the focus of the conference program over past years. Close collaborations with partners at the Max-Planck-Institute for Plasma Physics, the FriedrichLoeffler-Institute for Animal Health and faculties of the university such as mathematics, natural science and medicine made these events possible. The foyer of the Kolleg, open, transparent, flooded with light, is a welcome space for scientific exhibitions. In 2013 the Kolleg successfully hosted the travelling exhibition “Men and Microbe – The Heritage of Robert Koch and Modern Infection Research“ organised by the DFG and the Robert Koch Institute. The Kolleg was the patron of subsequent exhibitions designed by the DFG and the Helmholtz Association, which especially attracted young visitors.
