The cover topic of this unconventional research magazine covers a wide range of dimensions – from quantum physics and gerontology to the educational sciences. The academics at the University of Heidelberg take an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approach to how they think, work, research and teach.

The opposites »Stop & Go« are reflected in the design of the publication. The layout is modern, and large-format photos open each article with an interpretation of the theme from a unique perspective. The magazine does not use specialized jargon, making the language easy to understand for non-academics.

Research magazines

The design and concept of University of Heidelberg’s semiannual research magazine, »Ruperto Carola«, was updated as part of the institution’s corporate design relaunch. The university tagline, »The future since 1386«, inspires the opposites chosen to shape the content and design of this publication. Each issue is dedicated to a different theme relevant to society today.
