Together with the partners from industry the University of Stuttgart built one of the most modern, flexible and largest research factories in the world for mobility and production on the Vaihingen Campus for the research campus ARENA2036. In the course of the event “überMorgen“ on 22nd February 2018 over 800 high-ranking invited guests from science, business and politics will be able to experience the future in the research campus ARENA2036. On this occasion an international convention will also be taking place on the topic of “Industry on/at Campus” from 20th until 22nd February 2018.
At the Presidents’ and Rectors’ International Meeting at the University of Stuttgart (PRIMUS) conducted for the first time, leading representatives from international partner universities from all over the world will take part. Besides speeches given by Rector Professor Wolfram Ressel as well as Professor Oliver Sawodny and Professor Peter Middendorf as well as guest contributions from South Africa, China and Austria on cooperations between science and business, a visit to the Thyssenkrupp Tower in Rottweil will take place under the leadership of Professor Werner Sobek. The 246 metre high tower serves the purpose of testing express elevators and high-speed elevators with magnetic suspension technology.
In order to intensify the exchange with the international partner universities and to further increase the international visibility of the University of Stuttgart, there are future plans to conduct conventions in the framework of PRIMUS on a two-year rotation basis.
