Digital Strategy

Going Forward Together
Digital Transformation of Research, Teaching, Learning and Work at the University

A Digital Strategy for the University of Bonn

Innovations in information technology are transforming our world and thus changing the University of Bonn’s mission in research, teaching and social impact and the environment in which it is pursuing this. With this Digital Strategy, the University is positioning itself as both a university in the traditional sense, i.e. where teaching takes place on site, and one that embraces the possibilities afforded by digitalization. With a clear and comprehensive idea of its own development and what future-oriented, internationally interconnected research, teaching and IT services require, it has formulated its vision and identified measures and structures for its own digital transformation.

Vision and sets of objectives

The University’s vision for the future covers seven sets of objectives.
