Donation to the university is an investment in a better future.

We are living in the midst of considerable forces for change. The challenges of sustainable development require immediate action, while technological disruptions are affecting companies, working life and societies at a fundamental level. The landscape of higher education is changing too, as demand and competition increase, digitalisation becomes more deeply entrenched and university funding is under increasing pressure. Research and education now need all the support they can get.
