Since 1985, Pforzheim University has been inviting students, professors, employees and interested guests from the city and the region to an ambitious STUDIUM GENERALE program. The speakers are renowned scientists, entrepreneurs, politicians, artists and people who have achieved extraordinary things. Hundreds of interested listeners repeatedly take the opportunity to engage with a wide range of topics in order to broaden their horizons, learn new, stimulating and sometimes irritating things and experience interesting personalities up close. Since October 2020, all lectures can also be followed live via the STUDIUM GENERALE YouTube channel from the comfort of your own home or from anywhere and the recording can be watched for another four weeks. You are all cordially invited to the STUDIUM GENERALE at your university!

The academic directors are Professors Dr. Frauke Sander and Dr. Nadine Walter.
