Support for foundersThe SRH University operates a business incubator that is also integrated into Social Work events. The business incubator offers introductory courses on independence as well as free rooms for start-ups and a broad-based support programme for entrepreneurs.
Characteristics of assistance to differently abled personsThe SRH University Heidelberg was an academy for rehabilitees up to 1992 (SRH = Foundation for Rehabilitation of Heidelberg). It is on account of this tradition that today’s focus is still on promoting students with disabilities. The university’s programmes, especially Social Work, are deemed eligible programmes as far as the sponsors are concerned.
