Prof. Dr. Martin Faulstich as a guest at “Zukunftsorte”

Universities are real drivers of change – at least when it comes to the energy transition.

How true is this theory? We discuss this in this episode. Our guests: Karin Teichmann from Euref and Professor Martin Faulstich from TU Dortmund University.

Several degree courses are currently being developed for the Euref campus in Düsseldorf, whose graduates will definitely earn their money with transformation. Furthermore, research is being carried out on the future topic of hydrogen.

The Euref campuses in Berlin and Düsseldorf are also teaching and research locations. In Berlin for a very long time. In Düsseldorf, the corresponding degree programs are just being created. The man pulling the strings is Martin Faulstich. He is a senior professor at the Technical University of Dortmund and research coordinator of the University Alliance Ruhr. His own research focus as an environmental and energy engineer: How can industrial companies in particular manage the change? He is on the Scientific Advisory Board of the Talent Campus and heads up the scientific activities at the Euref Campus Düsseldorf, which will be completed later this year.

The campus idea is also close to the heart of a woman who has been a guest on the Zukunftsorte podcast several times. Karin Teichmann is Spokeswoman of the Board of Directors of Euref AG.

How do you design new degree programs that are practical but don’t lose sight of the basics? What transformation issues do universities face and how do they tackle them? And what role does research play in the energy transition?
