Education

The transfer of knowledge within the framework of academic courses, courses at recognised institutes of further education and individually tailored seminars is an independent area of work at the Research Institute. This ensures that knowledge of the most recent developments reaches the relevant circles. Through sound basic knowledge and understanding, the ability to analyse legal and related technical problems and the ability to make the necessary decisions for a solution are conveyed.
