There is nothing new about public funding getting increasingly tight in education, too. However, the retreat of the public sector does not necessarily have to be accompanied by a loss of quality in tuition and research. On the contrary, new opportunities are opening up for universities and businesses to jointly explore creative and market-oriented paths.
The Bonn-Rhine-Sieg University of Applied Sciences has been taking this chance for a long time, offering plenty of opportunities for companies to become actively involved with university life. Our University, the companies and not least our students can only benefit from such partnerships, which ensure the hands-on practical orientation of academic education as well as providing targeted support for the companies’ young talents. This cannot be overestimated in times of an increasing shortage of experts: it is a win-win situation for all those involved.
However, while in many other countries companies and private individuals have traditionally supported educational facilities close to them for centuries, a similar culture of support has yet to develop in Germany. And this is even though private donations, alongside public funding, are gaining in importance to meet the requirements of a global economy regarding education, research and development. For instance, companies, above all those from this region, are now more than ever required to make their contributions to the promotion of young talent and thus to our joint future.
Many companies are taking this development seriously, assuming responsibility in the interest of themselves and of society. Over the past few years, a large circle of friends and supporters has thus developed, who have decisively contributed to shaping our University.
To enable us to continue offering hands-on practical tuition and research at a very high academic level, our University is constantly looking for strong partners, donors and sponsors. If you have any queries regarding promotional projects, scholarships, donations and sponsoring, please do not hesitate to contact us!
We will be very pleased to discuss the possibilities of your individual commitment with you personally!
