The TUHH’s Institute for Waste Resources Management will relocate to the Hamburg Innovation Port (HIP) in October in accordance with a decision by the senate. The institute and a new information technology centre will move into Hip One, which is currently under construction. The initial lease is valid for 20 years as part of TUHH’s growth concept, which was approved by the senate in 2018.
Campus part of TUHH’s growth concept
“This is the starting signal for a new TUHH port campus,” said Prof. Dr. Ed Brinksma, President of the Technical University of Hamburg (TUHH). The new lease will continue the university’s growth concept initially for five years. A higher budget should grow capacities in engineer training and raise the impact on research, development and technology transfer. Around 17 new professorships are to be filled in this field.
Interface between science and industry
“The Hamburg Innovation Port is an ideal location for the TUHH as a future interface between science and industry in the Hanseatic city,” according to Katharina Fegebank, Senator for Science, Research and Equality. She added: “This will be a lively, innovative and creative location whose impulses and synergies will benefit not only the South Elbe Region, but the entire Hamburg Metropolitan Region.”
