Weinmann plans to further expand the importance of the science center: "In addition to its role as a TUM conference, the Science and Study Center Raitenhaslach stands out particularly because of the widely varied range of services it offers. In close collaboration with the city of Burghausen, TUM provides space for international encounters, academic dialog, cultural education and creative expression."

200 events have already been planned for the current year. "Because of the very high demand, the Science and Study Center is already completely booked out for 2023. This is a record year. Thanks to the hard work and commitment of our team, our planning is already focusing on 2025," said Weinmann.

City of Burghausen looks forward to cooperation

TUM President Prof. Thomas F. Hofmann said: "I'm very pleased to welcome Elina Weinmann as Director of the conference center, a dedicated individual with substantial experience in the university world. I myself always very much enjoy developing new strategies and exchanging ideas with colleagues in Raitenhaslach, far from the hectic pace of the everyday working world. This is indeed a very special place."

Burghausen's mayor Florian Schneider said: "We are very pleased that TUM has chosen Ms. Weinmann as the new Managing Director of the Science and Study Center in Raitenhaslach. The continued success of the Center and of our ongoing close interaction is important to the city of Burghausen. The city also organizes events in unique cultural formats and parlor discussions in Raitenhaslach and welcomes highly distinguished international guests from science, politics and business on a regular basis in the former Cistercian monastery. I wish Ms. Weinmann a good start in her new position and look forward to working together with her successfully.“

TUM Chancellor Albert Berger, who has worked hard personally on behalf of Raitenhaslach for years, is also looking forward to continuing and further expanding the already very successful work of the first years together with the new Managing Director and the entire TUM Raitenhaslach team.

Experience in academic education

A native of Lower Bavaria, Weinmann studied Educational Sciences at Freie Universität Berlin as well as Educational Science and Social Sciences at Humboldt University of Berlin. The new Managing Director brings a diverse range of valuable experience in academic education to her new position, including activities at the University of Regensburg Center for University and Scientific Didactics and many years as an independent lecturer.

"My plans and skill set perfectly complement our everyday business". The 34-year-old has relocated to the nearby district of Altötting for her new job. "I'm very pleased to be able to contribute to the successful future of the TUM Science and Study Center Raitenhaslach."
