Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

Dear Students!

As Rector of the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg, I bid you a very warm welcome. Salzburg, because of its beautiful scenery, many historical sites and the Festival, is one of the most beautiful and interesting cities in the world. And Salzburg is a university town with a long tradition. The University of Salzburg was founded by Prince Archbishop Paris Lodron, the namesake of the University, in 1622. Today it consists of four faculties, with approximately 18,000 students and 2,800 employees. It is a centre for innovative research and is firmly integrated into the cultural and economic life of Salzburg. With its national and international networking, it is a modern knowledge hub in the heart of Europe. We can be proud of this university, which seamlessly embeds itself with its architecturally interesting buildings in the beautiful ambience of this city. The University of Salzburg offers students a broad range of courses with a balanced ratio of teachers to students. The positioning of the University of Salzburg for a secure future is particularly close to my heart. It has set itself clear research priorities, created a development plan for the future, and today is characterized by constantly developing and meeting new challenges.
