The Board of Trustees of the University of Bayreuth consists of up to 20 personalities from business, culture and politics who represent the interests of the University in public.

“Florian Luderschmid brings with him many years of experience in Bavarian state administration and excellent networking both within and outside Upper Franconia,” says Heribert Trunk, Chairman of the Board of Trustees. “His involvement is an enormous asset for our Board of Trustees.”

Florian Luderschmid studied law in Regensburg and worked as a consultant at both the Bavarian State Ministry of the Interior and the Bavarian State Chancellery.

"I am very pleased about my appointment to the Board of Trustees of the University of Bayreuth. Because strengthening Upper Franconia as a science location and further expanding the already excellent research and teaching are important to me, I am very happy to support the University of Bayreuth, an important pillar in the educational landscape of our region, with my work on the Board of Trustees,” says Luderschmid.
