Europe-wide unique cooperation
The CEO of the Dieter Schwarz Foundation, Prof. Reinhold R. Geilsdörfer, said: "The cooperation with TUM has already had a very positive international impact on the scientific ecosystem in Heilbronn, as evidenced by numerous TUM partnerships with top international universities, including endowed professorships. The renowned TUM's extraordinarily positive development and leverage effect has prompted us to attract another top international university, ETH Zurich, to our educational campus. In cooperation with TUM, this will create unique synergy potential for Heilbronn."
TUM President Prof. Thomas F. Hofmann said: "With TUM and ETH Zurich, the Heilbronn Education Campus will, in the future, combine the expertise of two leading technical universities in one place. This is unique in Europe! And it will allow us to jointly advance research, teaching, and innovation on digital transformation at the highest international level."
ETH President Joël Mesot was also delighted: "The cross-border alliance will strengthen Europe's ability to provide its own answers to the major global challenges. We look forward to working with TUM and hopefully other top international universities in Heilbronn in the near future."
