At the invitation of the Mayor Fritz Schramma, The Cologne Science Forum was officially established on January 3, 2004 by representatives of all of Cologne’s institutions of higher education and research, the City of Cologne, and the Cologne Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
The goal of The Cologne Science Forum is to better integrate the region’s economic and scientific potential, to launch collaborative projects, and to define areas deserving promotional support. First and foremost, contacts to regional companies should be pursued and deepened, and citizens should be made more aware of Cologne’s resources in scientific research and higher education.
