Partners & Friends of the University – the Univerein
The Univerein was established in 1970 with the aim of strengthening the University of Bayreuth and providing new ideas and material support for its further development. Today the Univerein concentrates on the following areas in an effort to help further the University:
- Support research and teaching in cases where sufficient public funding is not immediately available
- Support the University’s overall development and keep the University well-connected in the region of Northeast Bavaria
- Maintain the University’s contacts with the residents of Bayreuth and Northeast Bavaria and contribute to student life
We are a strictly non-profit organization.
„I want to build a bridge between the University and the people of Bayreuth. My aim is to make Bayreuth’s residents identify more strongly with their university.“
Horst Eggers, Chairman (Universitätsvereins Bayreuth e.V.)
