The motivating idea behind the establishment of BayFOR came from the University of Bavaria e.V. It was their goal to strengthen the networking of 11 Bavarian universities at a regional, national and international level and, simultaneously, to make the universities of applied sciences fit for European research funding. The Bavarian Universities of Applied Sciences e.V. joined this plan a few months later with its 21 universities of applied sciences. The two associations are jointly pursuing the goal of providing the landscape for universities of applied sciences in Bavaria with a central contact point for regional, national and, especially, European research interests.
