Travel and Venue
A city in the south Westphalian part of North Rhine-Westphalia, in the basin of the upper reaches of the river Sieg. The city is ruled over by two castles. The “Upper Castle” is a fortified hilltop castle, which has been home to a regional museum for art and cultural history since 1905. A particular focus is placed on the life and works of the Baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens who was born in Siegen in 1577. Siegen is famous for its historic half-timbered houses and its winding alleyways.
The event takes place in the research center "Shaping the Future" of the University of Siegen. The research center is based on a joint cooperation between the University of Siegen, the State North Rhine-Westphalia and the "Sparkassenstiftung Zukunft"
(Foundation "Future" of Sparkasse Siegen). The aim of the center is to foster the multidisciplinarity of research at the University of Siegen and to expand its international network.
