Focus on innovation and professionals
Bringing the industry together for good and visionary school building
In 2012, director and initiator Kirsten Jung developed and created the SCHULBAU trade fair. Ever since, she has been bringing together school building professionals for annual fairs and networking salons in a number of Germany’s biggest cities such as Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, Cologne, Dresden as well as in Vienna.
In Denmark and Germany I work closely with C.F. Møller Architects, Danish Architects, BDA (Bund Deutscher Architekten), Bundesstiftung Baukultur, Montag Stiftung Jugend und Gesellschaft, DGNB, Building Green Council, the major German building authorities as well as with important federations and associations in the building industry. In 2023 I will continue the success with my first 2-day event in Copenhagen and I am looking forward to inviting Danish and German professionals from the industry,”
says Kirsten Jung who works and lives in both Hamburg and Copenhagen.
She will now share her years of experience in German-speaking countries and create contacts between Danish companies and her extensive network across Germany.
SCHOOL BUILDING is arguably one of the most crisis-proof platforms in construction today. Everything must be improved and started as quickly as possible in a situation of too many pupils, too few teachers and too few or too run-down schools.
The Danes bring new knowledge and new experiences to the table – with digitalisation and sustainability they are at the forefront internationally. And in Germany, as we all know, the demand for innovative ideas is huge. Not least when it comes to school construction, where €40 billion has been earmarked for school building alone up to 2040. For new construction, renovation, sustainability, reusability and redevelopment and everything that can create the best environment for today’s pedagogy and learning. I am gathering all the players around a huge market.
Since 2012, the German SCHULBAU trade fair has brought the industry together in cities such as Hamburg, Berlin, Dresden, Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Vienna to showcase good and visionary school construction.
I will now take these successes to Copenhagen. All Danish and German industry players are hereby invited to two days filled with experiences, matchmaking, new knowledge and exciting relationships.”
