EBS Universität opens European Institute
EBS Universität officially opened its new European Institute on Tuesday.
On the campus in Oestrich-Winkel, EBS President Günther H. Oettinger and SRH CEO Prof. Dr. Christof Hettich gave the go-ahead in front of 80 invited guests. With the institute, EBS wants to make its contribution to a sustainable and stable economy in Europe.
"With the Europainstitut, we want to sharpen the focus on a European perspective and create the necessary framework for holistic thinking about economics, law and politics," emphasised EBS President Günther H. Oettinger in his opening speech. "In the future, the Institute will work in an interdisciplinary way to solve European challenges. We expect to gain many new insights that will lay the scientific foundation for economic activity in Europe".
"We are a generation that takes Europe for granted. It is our task as a university to promote young talent so that we can work together with courage and confidence for a Europe with all its freedoms," added Prof. Dr. Christof Hettich, Chairman of the SRH Executive Board.
The network acts as a driving force for research and teaching on pressing issues and topics in Europe, such as the Supply Chain Act or the characteristics and effects of New Work.
The Europainstitut networks top international executives from different sectors to develop innovative solutions for today's European challenges. The aim is to train and develop leaders for the European labour market. The Institute aims to support particularly talented young professionals with scholarships.
With the opening of the Europainstitut, EBS Universität continues to focus on its international orientation. It was founded in 1971 as the European Business School with the mission of educating young people who not only have access to excellent teaching but also have an international outlook.
