The Höffmann Academic Award
for Intercultural Competence 2019
is being conferred at the University of Vechta.
The Höffmann Academic Award for Intercultural Competence, sponsored by the
Vechta-based travel company Höffmann Reisen GmbH, is conferred annually by
the University of Vechta. The award comes with a cash prize of € 10,000.
The Höffmann Academic Award is part of a long-term programme aimed at
promoting intercultural skills, which are the key to peaceful and constructive
co-operation between people of various ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds.
Intercultural competence enables us to identify common ground and
to learn from our characteristic features. In many ways, intercultural issues are
an integral element of academic research for numerous disciplines.
The aim of the Höffmann Academic Award is to support the endeavours of an
outstanding academic by awarding a prize to groundbreaking work carried out
on topics of intercultural competence. Such work can concentrate on exploring
the topic from the perspective of a single discipline or it may be interdisciplinary
