About U4I

Since the founding of University4Industry (U4I) in 2015, it is Jan Veira and Dr. Wolfgang Huhns mission to efficiently empower companies and their employees for the challenges of the future. Their comprehensive support of leading companies has proven that reskilling and upskilling are only successful through company-specific competence building. The expertise of the well-renown B2B company with its headquarters in Munich is based on its experienced team and its constantly growing eco-system of more than 1,000 experts, and over 120 partner institutions. Following the motto “Learn in order to act“, U4I supports 4 out of 5 German automotive manufacturers, 7 out of 15 DAX companies as well as 3 of the 5 largest German mechanical and plant engineering companies today and aims to be the leading partner for company-specific competence building.
With 30 years of industry experience, Dr. Wolfgang Huhn ensures that our learning content is relevant and application-oriented in order to create potential for companies. He was a senior partner in the German office of McKinsey & Company, where his focus was on semiconductor, optics, energy equipment and industrial IT industries. Dr. Wolfgang Huhn studied physics and electrical engineering at RWTH Aachen University, where he received his doctorate in theoretical physics.

“Demographic change has made reskilling and upskilling a priority. Skills are desperately needed to ensure the performance and innovation capability of companies. But how can this be done in a company with full-time employees who have little time available for this? My experience: For successful personnel development, formats that are tailored to the respective target group and practice-oriented, as well as company-specific learning content that can be integrated into everyday work, are crucial.”
Jan Veira’s focus lies on the areas of Industry 4.0 and Industrial Security. Prior to founding U4I, he was Associate Principal at McKinsey & Company, where he was part of the global Semiconductor Practice, working primarily for high-tech and technology clients. He has 10+ years of experience in the high-tech industry, an MBA from the University of California Berkeley, and a Diploma in physics from the TU Berlin.

“Digitalization and decarbonization are the topics of our time. For Germany and Europe, they represent an economic opportunity, but also a gigantic challenge. It is essential for companies to support their employees now in building the skills necessary for the future in order to remain capable of action and to secure prosperity. My mission with University4Industry is to successfully shape this transformation as a partner of large companies and organizations. This is how we ensure future viability!”
