The symposia offer a public dialogue where science meets practice. The aim is to stimulate an intensive and informed discussion of current social policy issues and thus provide input for public debate. The symposia are intended to offer not only clarification and orientation but also concrete solutions and thus stimulate debate both in the scientific world and in the public arena.
In recent years the symposia have focused particularly on topical issues around the reform of tertiary education in Germany. Working closely with Heinz Nixdorf Foundation, the Schleyer Foundation has attracted top class contributors in the relevant fields and built this programme up into a sort of Higher Education Fair.
