Schwäbisch Hall-Stiftung bauen-wohnen-leben


The concept for an Endowed Institute "Sustainable Management of Housing and Real Estate" at the Department of Economics and Management was developed in 1998 by the Foundation "bauen-wohnen-leben" of the home savings and loan association "Schwäbisch-Hall". During 2000 and 2010 the Foundation generously supported establishing, developing and operating the Endowed Institute. The personal contacts made during this time period and the intense collaboration continue to exist.
