University Magazines

The university magazines report on current university events, exceptional research and transfer projects, news of interest in university politics, and about studying at the University of Potsdam.

This page provides an overview of the current issues. Older issues are available in the respective archive, where you will find the issues from 2022 on in an accessible version.

The print editions of our three magazines are available at all university locations, including in the blue newspaper boxes (for example in the cafeteria or in the libraries). You can also have our magazines sent to you free of charge; the corresponding form is here.


The Portal magazine reports on events at the University of Potsdam, summarizing important developments, providing information about central events, introducing interesting initiatives and projects, giving portraits of employees and students, and offering insights into the University’s international activities and research.

Portal Wissen

The research magazine Portal Wissen presents the diversity of research at the University of Potsdam, with exciting reporting on projects, interviews about complex research questions, portraits of interesting researchers and reports about “self-testing” in scientific experiments.

Portal Transfer

Transfer Magazine reports on how knowledge and innovation are transferred from the university into practice. It presents researchers who dare to do something new and implement their ideas in their own companies. The articles provide lively insights into the workings of start-ups, portray people whose career paths are encouraging, and trace the motives for joint commitment. In addition to interesting stories from alumni and alumnae, you can learn what is behind the “Inno-UP” project, why the university is planning a school and how citizens can get involved in research.
