Technology Alliance of Upper Franconia (TAO): Bundled competency times four

The four universities in Upper Franconia, i.e. the two universities of Bamberg and Bayreuth and the universities of applied sciences in Coburg and Hof, work together under the umbrella of "TechnologieAllianzOberfranken" (TAO). In addition to the partner universities, students, business, and industry all benefit from this – and thereby the entire region.

Renowned universities and colleges, a strong economy, and committed people – the pre-conditions are certainly there in Upper Franconia. TAO's task is to bring these together in order to further develop the region as a centre of science, and make its economy future-proof. Furthermore, TAO seeks to counteract migration to conurbations and an ageing regional population, and consequently receives demographic funding from the Free State of Bavaria.
