Dear readers,

With the revealing of the Wuppertal Institut's new logo at the front of our office building on 4 April 2016, NRW Minister of Science Svenja Schulze, Wuppertal's mayor Andreas Mucke and the institute's president, Prof. Dr. Uwe Schneidewind, symbollically fired the starting pistol for the institute's new Corporate Design. At the same time, it marked the start of the institute's 25th anniversary year under the motto "Welcome to Wuppertal - Making Utopia possible", which has its peak in the week of 5 to 9 September 2016. Not only this newsletter has been redesigned, but we also gave our website a new layout.
