Cooperation for the future of construction

On 21 September 2020, in connection with an event held jointly by HTWK Leipzig, the S&P Group, MFPA Leipzig GmbH and IFTB GmbH, a cooperation contract was signed by Prof. Mark Mietzner as Rector of HTWK Leipzig and Dr Mathias Reuschel for the three aforementioned companies. In connection with a joint event, and as an expression of this cooperation, a research hall newly built by MFPA Leipzig GmbH was handed over to Staatsbetrieb Sächsisches Immobilien- und Baumanagement, state-owned real-estate and construction-management agency, for the use of HTWK Leipzig.

In addition, plot 218/1 of the Engelsdorf subdistrict was dedicated as the InnovationsPark • Bautechnik • Leipzig/Sachsen, with immediate effect, by Saxony’s State Minister for Science, Culture and Tourism Sebastian Gemkow, State Minister for Regional Development Thomas Schmidt (not in the photo), Mayor of Leipzig Burkhardt Jung, and CEO of MFPA Leipzig GmbH Dr Jörg Schmidt.

In doing so, the signatories of the deed of dedication not only acknowledged the site’s many years of tradition in the field of research, development, evaluation, monitoring and certification of materials, products, components and designs for construction, they were also pursuing the goal of further strengthening the regional economy.

We thank all those involved for their contribution to the success of this event.
