What role does knowledge transfer play at the University of Münster? The Communication and Public Relations department conducts a six-month study to answer this question. Our dossier begins with Vice-Rector Prof. Dr Michael Quante explaining why transfer is not a one-way street. In the January edition of the University newspaper, Prof. Dr Traugott Roser describes his pilgrimage along St. James’ Way to Santiago de Compostela. We also present the three prizewinners of this year’s Rectorate Awards. In a guest commentary, Prof. Dr Thomas Apolte sheds light on the modern mythos of revolution. The Year of Science 2020 is dedicated to the field of bioeconomics. And inclusion tutors are now available to support fellow students with disabilities.
