By combining their continuing education courses, the universities in south Baden are preparing for the future. Currently 8 universities in total have signed an agreement to make their continuing education initiatives more transparent and to cooperate in further development. Within the framework of the "Weiter in Südbaden" project, HFU Akademie is working with the Freiburg university continuing education organization (FRAUW) on the organizational and legal foundations for this joint continuing education initiative. Both private persons and companies and organizations in the region will profit from being able to see clearly what opportunities are available through the universities, a unified system of qualifications and courses which are combinable with each other.
"Weiter in Südbaden" is a joint project of the University of Freiburg and Furtwangen University. It is jointly funded to the sum of approximately €1.1m (2016-2020) by the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts and the European Social Fund (ESF).
