Tourist Attractions around Hof














Even after 300 years, Isaac Newton’s law of universal gravitation is the basis of modern physics. More contemporary than ever is his quotation:”What we know is a drop. What we don’t know is an ocean.” In our fast-paced 21st century, technological developments age with increasingly shorter time span. It has become nearly impossible to keep track of on-going innovations with our rather busy day-to-day business.



The International Environment Academy

The International Environment Academy Hof is a project of the Competence Network Water Hof. Within this network local leading businesses as well as sophisticated institutions are bundling their technical and practical know-how. As the seminar program is primarily designed by these partners, best practices in terms of state-of-the-art technologies and latest solutions are imparted at the Environment Academy Hof.


The Program

The Academy’s program is geared towards representatives and staff of private enterprises, who – within the context of internal environment policy - are aiming at optimizing their water supply, wastewater disposal, solid waste management, environmental management, as well as their power supply, by utilizing renewable energy sources. As we are facing an increasingly limited supply of resources, cost cutting, increase in efficiency and reduction of environmental impact have become key aspects of business management. Academy seminar participants include representatives of governmental and semi-governmental institutions as well as regulatory agencies governing water, wastewater, energy and environment, and staff of private planning and engineering offices.


The Clients

The seminar program of the Environment Academy Hof is primarily geared towards international clients. The program is comprised of topics from the field of water supply, wastewater technology, solid waste management, renewable energy sources and environmental management. Seminar sites are mainly located within the region surrounding Hof. Participants may, aside from the seminar program, take advantage of the opportunity to familiarize themselves onsite about the production or the infrastructure of facilities of the respective companies and service-providers.
