Being convinced that exchange, cooperation and collaboration are indispensable for valuable projects, for personal and structural development, and for successful goal achievement, I am actively involved in various networks and partnerships.

In the field of science transfer and research-practice dialogue, I initiated the network, which is now organised as an association. In the field of civic education, I co-founded the association Demokrative - Initiative for Civic Education. More information about these organizations and other partners can be found on the respective websites.
