„Veritable education does not consist of dead knowledge or empty memorisation but fosters the lively development of the mind and the power of judgement”
Ernst Haeckel (1834 - 1919), German philosopher, zoologist and free thinker; he popularised Darwin’s theory of evolution, author of fundamental works on the history of development of marine biology
The objective of the Kemper-Foundation for Real Estate Education and Research is to support real estate management education and research at the HAWK University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Holzminden, Germany.
Gerhard K. Kemper, Founder: ‟For me, education is the most important gift that parents can give to their children. The foundations form the upbringing and the living example that parents give to their offspring. School and university education does not just impart knowledge, but, more importantly, the ability to reflect on an abstract level, power of judgement and independent thinking. These capabilities are necessary in the real estate business as well. Furthermore, an international orientation becomes increasingly important in today’s property world in addition to theory with practical relevance. The purpose of the Kemper-Foundation for Real Estate Education and Research is to support the HAWK in reaching these goals.”
