Klaus Tschira Stiftung presents Wing A to Heidelberg University
Heidelberg University reports that
mathematicians and computer scientists at Heidelberg University will be able to teach and conduct research together under one roof in the future, instead of being spread across various locations. The institutes and facilities of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science and the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing (IWR) will share a home in the Mathematikon, after its three-year construction. The building is owned by the Klaus Tschira Stiftung (KTS), which will officially hand over Wing A to the university and the state of Baden-Württemberg at the opening ceremony on 11 December 2015. Baden-Württemberg Minister of Science, Theresia Bauer, will attend. Gerda Tschira will commemorate the dedication in honor of her late husband.

This generous gift will also help to re-unite the currently three different office locations of GIScience Heidelberg in further office spaces on the Campus Neuenheimer Feld next year 🙂
