Richard von Weizsäcker Forum

The Richard von Weizsäcker Forum was established in honor of the former Federal President, who served for many years on the Board of Trustees of the Robert Bosch Stiftung. The Forum is the largest event of the Robert Bosch Academy. Each fall, it brings together former, current and future Fellows.

On the first day of the Forum, the Fellows engage in discussions on current global challenges with leading decision-makers and intellectuals from all over the world. Following this “Fellows in Conversation” day, the Robert Bosch Academy organizes a study tour to expand and deepen the Fellows’ knowledge of Germany. Through dialogue with representatives from politics, business, civil society, culture, and media the participants gain valuable insights and new perspectives on current issues in Germany. A final retreat serves for the Fellows to reflect on their impressions.

Moreover, the Richard von Weizsäcker Forum fosters networking and dialogue among the Fellows, and thereby strengthens the Fellow-Community.
