Foundation: 1958

Mission: Our mission is to create new knowledge and educate future talents. At the same time we must renew ourselves; we take care of our skills, create new ways to do things and update methods of teaching. We wish new ideas welcome and see possibilities in change, since thinking critically helps question old practises. Sharing knowledge and enabling innovations is important to us. We encourage students and colleagues to think open-mindedly, to do things for the first time and, when needed, to learn from their mistakes.
