In her speech, Dr. Verena Konrad, Member of the University Council of the University of Liechtenstein and Director of the vai Vorarlberger Architektur Institut, said: «Acquiring knowledge is one thing. Much more important is how you use this knowledge and what you are committed to with your skills. Intellectual greatness lies in the ability to question, to critically reflect on your environment and your own actions. To support you in this growth has been the task of this university to this day. We wish you companions on your way who will help you to grow further and the strength to do the same for others.»
