Opening Week 2011

Gesundheit - Health!


The 2011 Opening Week was all about health, a fundamental question in a changing German society. In a wide-ranging simulation game, around 1800 first-semester students negotiated a new, affordable and fair health system for the Federal Republic of Germany. They took on the roles of 40 leading players in the German healthcare system and, within four days and over several rounds of negotiation, established a national consensus on a workable model to be implemented from 2012 onwards.
