Portrait of Hamburg’s new university president

By 25. February 2022May 22nd, 2022Trailer

The city of Hamburg has a new university president in Prof. Dr. Hauke Heekeren – and we now introduced him to all employees, students and the general public!

The 51-year-old physician and university manager is moving from Freie Universität Berlin to the University of Hamburg. Hauke Heekeren has many years of experience in leading interdisciplinary collaborative projects as well as larger units in contexts of excellence and received his certificate of appointment from the Hamburg Senate on February 15, 2022. In accordance with the requirements of the Hamburg Higher Education Act, the Senate officially appointed Heekeren to a six-year term on Feb. 1.

We had two very pleasant days of shooting with “our” new university president and wish Hauke Heekeren a successful start in the most beautiful city in the world 🙂
