Welcome to Justus Liebig University's 16th International Summer University.
We invite you to spend two creative weeks of intense analyzing, studying, imagining, developing and discussing the future of societies after Covid-19 in the summer of 2021. The Virtual International Summer University 2021 focuses on:
Transforming Societies for a Better Future
- Pushing Medicine forward
The Covid-19 pandemic has given an unprecedented push to rapid mRNA agent research and development. eHealth and the mass deployment of medical apps have reached an unprecedented level across the world. We will analyze the possibilities for applying mRNA agent development to oncology and overcoming medicine's major obstacles. We will further analyze the opportunities of eHealth for modern societies.
- Transforming investing
Stakeholders of investment funds and sovereign wealth funds alike are not only looking for return but for impact of their investments. We will analyze new investment strategies and their impact on transforming societies.
- Transforming education
Sending more than 1 billion children and students home, the pandemic has given a rise to e-learning in schools and universities alike. We will reimagine higher education in this course and develop concepts for providing access to better education for more students at more affordable prices.

New concepts of transportation promise less time spent commuting and less risk from car crashes both for drivers and pedestrians. In this module we analyze the determinants of a more efficient transportation system and its impact on future societies.
