Sustainability is the order of the day
The number of students is rising continuously. At traditional face-to-face universities, this would mean more rooms, more apartments in the cities, more travel to the university. This puts an additional strain on the climate. Likewise, rising heating and electricity costs for a large number of lecture halls lead to immense additional costs that must be avoided. With a hybrid set-up, there are no limits to the number of students – even new business models for universities, as demonstrated by universities in the USA, become conceivable.
