Forging Stronger Ties Between Both Universities
The Linz University of Art & Design and the JKU have worked closely together over many years. Rector Lukas added, “The way Rector Reinhard Kannonier has managed to shape and position his university is unparalleled.

There is a strong foundation for further collaboration here and I look forward to building on this foundation with Brigitte Hütter.”
