Project launched against the backdrop of political and industrial support

The vision of a unique seminar centre on the basis of monasterial tradition and excellent research in the shape of the Study & Residence Center Raitenhaslach can rely on wide support from industry in the Bavarian Chemical Triangle as well as the regional and national politicians. Particularly global players Wacker Chemie AG and OMV Deutschland GmbH, who have important production sites in Burghausen, have already expressed their strong interest in using Raitenhaslach as a study and meeting centre. At political level, the Mayor and the Town Council of the town of Burghausen, the District Administrator of the district of Altötting and the constituency representatives of state parliament and the Bundestag are urging that the project be carried out quickly. In August 2011, the Bavarian State Ministry of Sciences, Research and the Arts pledged its support. Politicians and industry as well as Inn Salzach Euregio see a Study & Residence Center Raitenhaslach as a future-oriented flagship project in the interests of cross-border regional development to create a science-oriented network with a European cooperation structure.

In October 2011, the Bavarian State Chancellery held out the prospect of EUR 10 million in support from the Bavarian State Government. In 2011, following the analysis and evaluation of the building stock carried out by TUM from 2007 to 2010 – which is seen in the documentation entitled "Raitenhaslach – Ort der Begegnung und Wissenschaft" (August 2011/only in german language) – the town of Burghausen began with the first restoration works on the prelate post. The restoration project is being supported from the outset by the Bavarian Office for the Preservation of Historical Monuments, since the entire Raitenhaslach complex is classed as particularly worthy of being preserved in terms of architectural and artistic history.

The next project steps in the realisation of the Study & Residence Center Raitenhaslach vision include the apportionment of the state’s share of the funding to upgrade the historic Raitenhaslach complex over the period from 2012 to 2015. Another step is the development of an operator model by the town of Burghausen and the TUM. Here, several alternatives are being considered, e.g. in the form of a foundation, a non-profit GmbH or a GmbH & Co. KG.
