Future. THM

The environment and the framework conditions of the universities have changed significantly in the past decades, both technically and socially. As an innovative university, we have adapted to these changes and evolved. Because change is always a motor for innovation and creativity. In order to look ahead, the presidium has recently initiated the Further management of the strategy process and the identification of the future goals of the THM . Under the name of " Future. THM ", a picture of the "university of the future" is to be developed with the broad participation of the university members.

This should be in the form of future workshops and future conferences happen that enable interdisciplinary work in small groups and the design of desirable visions of a sustainable THM and its departments and central organizational units. In this way, we want to remain attractive as a university for students and employees and be prepared for future challenges.

All departments and central organizational units as well as students are addressed. The participants in the project are accompanied by Prof. Dr. Anja Grothe and Dr. Matthias Teller from Sustainum Consulting, who, with their many years of experience in complex organizations, have successfully guided and moderated many processes. The process flow shown below shows the individual phases and steps of the project. There will be more information about these here as we progress.
