Innovative Location Award in "365 Days in the Land of Ideas" Competition
In June 2006, ZU receives its first innovative location award in the "365 Days in the Land of Ideas" competition. Special praise is reserved for their innovative approach which, alongside the interdisciplinary nature of the programs, is reflected in concepts like GlobalStudies, StudentStudies, and TandemCoaching. The "Germany – Land of Ideas" initiative (2006 – 2012), in conjunction with Deutsche Bank, rewards ideas and projects which make a lasting contribution to Germany's future.
The second award in this competition follows in 2008. It receives an award together with the "You Change Your World" project which was initiated by the Ashoka Foundation, in which young people from the Lake Constance region are mobilized to be socially responsible.
