Prof. Rainer Franke in a conversation with Inge Jacobs, Stuttgarter Zeitung
Showing off is not his style. Rainer Franke is one who persistently pursues his goals, but wants to achieve them rather silently. Since 2007, he has been managing the Hochschule für Technik Stuttgart (HFT) as the principal, not as the HFT manager, as he emphasizes. Now, at 65, he is retiring. The balance of his two terms of office is impressive.
