One year ago, JenaVersum was founded as an association. That would be reason enough to celebrate if we hadn’t already achieved so much together.

The spirit of collaboration and exchange lies above the numerous working meetings and workshops in our fields of action and on cross-cutting issues – whether in the exchange on research initiatives, the communication meetup, the networking meeting of the responsible persons for IT infrastructure or the discussion of the question of how research infrastructure can be used in a more coordinated way in the future. After a successful application, the Carl Zeiss Foundation will support the implementation of a solution for this the next four years.

Members’ assembly

The trusting cooperation between science, business and the city was also evident at the JenaVersum members’ assembly on 30 November 2022, where interdisciplinary cooperation projects were presented as one part. Insights were provided into the Zentrum für Alternsforschung Jena (ZAJ) with the project Impuls, the Thüringer Wasser-Innovationscluster (ThWIC) (Thuringian Water Innovation Cluster) and the Jena Smart City project.

And next year?

In the coming year, we are looking forward to continuing the positive cooperation and especially to the event Future Conference #JenaVersum2027. In the summer, all partners, participants and interested people will be able to meet and exchange ideas. An invitation will follow shortly.

Many thanks to all partners for their commitment! We look forward to another year of JenaVersum with you!
