The University of Vechta has set out to present a clear profile to the business, social and cultural world. The Vechta region offers the perfect laboratory for addressing a range of issues impacting on the future viability of our global society – an economic boomregion in the heart of the countryside, a provincial global player, a unique cultural and social identity, natural spaces and intensive agriculture; contrasting factors which resolve into an excellent quality of life. The University of Vechta’s development plan defines the rural space as a framework for profiling the areas of education, aging, social services, cultural change and regional development. The choice of focus represents a conscious response to the University’s location, which delineates it from urban spaces and creates additional research prospects, including at the international level.
