European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen will give a speech, and appearances will be made by TUM President Thomas F. Hofmann, Munich's mayor Dieter Reiter and the UnternehmerTUM Supervisory Board Chair Susanne Klatten.

UnternehmerTUM will cover the construction costs, amounting to approximately 30 million euros, as well as the operating costs; the city of Munich is providing the land based on a lease in perpetuity.
