Hilti extends collaboration with University of Liechtenstein

August 19, 2015

Hilti Corporation and the University of Liechtenstein have extended an agreement for the Hilti Chair at the Institute of Information Systems for another four years. The aim of the Hilti Chair of Business Process Management, which was set up in 2007, is to enable collaboration between academics and industry through a practical approach.

Over the last few years the team, reporting to the Head of the Chair, Prof. Jan vom Brocke, has worked on more than 30 projects with regional companies. Four competence centres have been set up, funded by the Government of Liechtenstein and regional industry, enabling rapid and direct transfer of knowledge. As part of the Bachelor, Master’s and PhD studies at the University of Liechtenstein, more than 350 students so far have been educated by the Hilti Chair.

“The numerous projects that have been realised, the superior quality of the training and education and the strong international research network are evidence of the successful work that is undertaken by the Hilti Chair,” stated Jörg Kampmeyer, member of the Hilti Executive Board. “We and many other companies in the region benefit from this IT expertise. Therefore, it is one of our objectives to offer extensive support for research and education over the next few years too.”

Klaus Näscher, Rector of the University of Liechtenstein, added, “It underlines the successful partnership and I am particularly pleased about that. In order to expand and optimise our activities, we are increasingly depending on such funding. This collaboration is extremely beneficial not only to the project partners but also for the entire business location.”
