The Haute Franconian Universities of Bayreuth and Bamberg and the Universities of Coburg and Hof have been working together in the Alliance of High Franconian Technology (TAO) for eleven years. Now the new home of this collaboration will be presented to the public. Bavarian Science Minister Markus Blume (CSU) will deliver the speech on Saturday in the new TAO building on the University of Bayreuth campus.
TAO: Universities and colleges cooperate
The alliance’s mission is to expand the Upper Franconia region as a science site, reports Anja Chalis de Beaulieu, head of the TAO office. Universities and colleges rely on cooperation rather than competition. The collaboration should also help slow down the migration of young people from Upper Franconia to urban areas and provide them with research and educational opportunities at home. Research and teaching under the TAO umbrella focus on energy, mobility, and materials as well as information and sensor technology.
At the official opening of the new building on Professor Rüdiger-Bormann-Straße 1, visitors are waiting for a varied program: laboratories can be visited from 2 pm to 5 pm, spider feeding can be attended, staff report on their work. The TAO Student Research Center has prepared offers for all age groups to participate. Engineering courses are also offered at the University of Bayreuth.
