CSU parliamentary group visits Hof University of Applied Sciences

At the invitation of Hof’s Member of the State Parliament Alexander König, the leadership of the CSU parliamentary group in the Bavarian State Parliament visited Hof University of Applied Sciences. Parliamentary group chairman Thomas Kreuzer, parliamentary managing director Tobias Reiß and state parliament member Martin Schöffel (constituency Wunsiedel/Kulmbach) were welcomed by university president Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c.. Jürgen Lehmann and informed them about the current developments and challenges within the university landscape. In particular questions of the bureaucracy dismantling with building projects, the internationalization strategy of the university yard as well as the creation of sufficient dwelling were thereby in the center of the lively discussion.

The topic of applied research also played a major role in the discussion with politicians: Jessica Wittmann, who had recently received the special research award from the Society of Friends and Sponsors of Hof University of Applied Sciences, together with research group leader Prof. Dr. Jörg Krumeich, presented her project “KH Bett” to the participants, which deals with research into bacteria-free paint surfaces by adding the substance chitosan, which is obtained from shellfish.

University President Prof. Lehmann himself explained the “Schwammstadt” project to the CSU parliamentary group leaders who had traveled to the event: researchers at the Institute for Water and Energy Management (iwe) want to develop a concept for regional climate adaptation that can compensate for periods of drought and heavy rainfall in water management by integrating digital elements – a project for water storage that is unique to date. The political representatives were very interested in both projects and asked many follow-up questions.

The visit was concluded by a tour of the Hof University of Applied Sciences campus and a short tour of the MakerSpace.
