"Knowledge culture" - a complex subject area! For the JDZB, the focus is on questioning the way we deal with the meaning of knowledge and the way knowledge is generated, communicated, and applied. From our point of view, transformation processes are particularly exciting: How do the selection and absorption of knowledge change in the face of the digital flood of information? How do we consume knowledge, how can we deal with the complexity that comes with it? Can we do this at all - or is the world becoming dumber rather than smarter? Are we facing an unfolding of creative potential through new opportunities - or is our standard of knowledge leveling down along with our attention span between WhatsApp and Instagram?


Always keeping Japanese and German references in mind, the JDZB approaches these questions in our week of events with a variety of starting points and offerings for our audience, ranging from literary readings by young writers to roundtable discussions on digital learning in school education in Japan, France and Germany with representatives of academia, government, and practice. The overarching theme will be perspectives on the further development of our knowledge societies in Japan and Germany and on how global knowledge structures work. We also want to focus our attention on how companies expand their knowledge, e.g. within the framework of open innovation processes.


We invite you to join us for this focus week organized by the entire JDZB and various partners! Opportunities for networking and active exchange will not be missed.
