Board of Trustees of the Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences

The Board of Trustees of the Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences (HNU) acts as a stakeholder and source of ideas for the HNU in the public and fosters the fulfillment of tasks by the HNU. It was established in the fall of 2013 and met on December 5, 2013 for its inaugural meeting.

The Board of Trustees was created as a result of the second HNU future workshop, which was held in June 2012 under the title "Which university of applied sciences does the region need?". Nine topic areas were discussed by the participants – representatives of companies, universities and employees of the HNU; they debated about the possibilities of how to enhance the substantive profile of the HNU. The ideas developed resulted in specific projects and in the idea to re-convene the Board of Trustees at the HNU.
