Our partner stages

The University:Future Festival (U:FF) in 2024 took place in multiple cities: Berlin, Bochum, Heilbronn, Leipzig, and Nürnberg.

The University:Future Festival 2024 was a three-day hybrid event. The festival, in collaboration with partners, created five locations where participants came together and exchanged ideas. At the same time, U:FF remained digital-first, with the majority of participants joining online, as that’s where they could experience the entire programme. The theme of U:FF in 2024 was “Tales of Tomorrow”. It was organized by the Hochschulforum Digitalisierung and the Stiftung Innovation in der Hochschullehre with support by the Stifterverband.

All of our stages featured outstanding speakers, networking opportunities, and special local offerings.
