Five years of success
The 5-year reform process of the HfP was successfully completed under the leadership of reform rector Prof. Eugénia da Conceição-Heldt in accordance with the guidelines decided by the Bavarian Parliament. Not only has the HfP been placed on new feet, the HfP has also sustainably strengthened and complemented Munich as a center of science with its new research approach. The scientific expertise in research and teaching has been broadly positioned and convinces the students of the HfP. In addition to the classic study content of political science, the impact of technological progress, e.g. in the areas of energy, environment, climate change, European and global governance, global health, digital governance, big data, data security, as well as mobility, are now also taught through an outstanding range of courses. In order to successfully master this task, the teaching staff of the HfP has almost doubled within only 5 years. This is complemented by an attractive study environment and individual support and advice for students. High-profile event formats such as the speaker series “Munich Talks” and the annual conference “Munich Politics Network” have also been launched.
