July 4, 2023

Anna-Vera Deinhammer has been researching and teaching at the Real Estate Management study programs since June 1. Her professorship was endowed by TPA Steuerberatung GmbH, BUWOG Group GmbH and LENIKUS Immobilien GmbH.

Anna-Vera Deinhammer will spend five years as an endowed professor at the Real Estate Management study programs at FHWien der WKW researching and teaching on the complex topic of sustainable real estate development, which is so crucial for the real estate industry. The main objective is to create a center of excellence for sustainable, resource-saving and climate-neutral real estate development and renovation, which takes into account aspects of the circular economy as well as current legal regulations in Austria and the EU.

We are pleased to welcome Anna-Vera Deinhammer, a proven expert in sustainable real estate development, to the team. Due to the broad range of the founders’ consortium, which combines different perspectives and issues, the necessary transdisciplinary approach is lived from the very beginning.

says Head of Programs Klemens Braunisch.

Impulses for more sustainability in the real estate industry

Four companies have endowed the professorship for sustainable real estate development:

  • TPA Steuerberatung GmbH
  • BUWOG Group GmbH
  • LENIKUS Immobilien GmbH
  • Erste Bank der oesterreichischen Sparkassen AG

The donors will contribute topics whose research and clarification are central to their own business activities and to the real estate industry. The research results are to be published, presented at professional events and passed on to students.

Through these activities, the endowed professorship will provide the real estate industry with scientifically validated impulses for more sustainability and contribute to achieving the sustainability goals set by the United Nations and the EU, for example in the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the EU’s Green Deal and Taxonomy Regulation. Finally, the actors in the real estate sector should be encouraged to use current crises to develop and operate future-oriented real estate and thus create secure investments.
