Endowment Management Program
The aim of the Endowment Management Program (EMP) is to establish a university endowment at WU.
The start of the program was in October 2010 with the dedication of the first "Endowment Management Gründungspreis" of the POK Pühringer Privatstiftung. Apart from the necessary seed capital the price comes also with the commitment of POK Pühringer Privatstiftung and ZZ Vermögensverwaltung GmbH to help WU to build up expertise and structures such that the university is able to manage the funds in an university investment office.
Through the endowment the university should get more independent from public funds and enable research in projects which would otherwise not be funded.
