The Health Economics Winter School 2023 will be held at the Studio Villa Bosch in Heidelberg, nicely located in close proximity to the Heidelberg Castle and in easy reach from the historical Old Town. Starting in 1921, BASF erected for its CEO, Professor Carl Bosch, a spacious country mansion and ancillary buildings in the Schlierbach district of Heidelberg. Bosch was awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1931, together with Friedrich Bergius. The mansion is considered to be one of the most beautiful buildings in Heidelberg. The house is set in a small park on the slopes of the so called “Little Odenwald Forest” overlooking the river Neckar and within easy walking distance (15 minutes) of the famous Heidelberg Castle. It was placed on cultural heritage listings long ago; moreover, in 1997 it was added to the list of heritage buildings deserving special protection.
In 2001, the studio on the Villa Bosch compound was converted by Klaus Tschira into a modern conference center for scientific lectures, symposia, workshops, and educational courses. Visitors can now enter the building via the newly created street entrance on Schloss-Wolfsbrunnenweg. A light-flooded access and reception area, three conference halls featuring the latest in communication technology, and the stimulating combination of modern architecture and historical gardens create a unique ambience. Visitors are able to park in the garage beneath the “Bosch meadow” opposite the Villa Bosch.
