The “Seefahrtschule Leer” e.V. support association is a registered association and has its registered office in Leer.
It was founded on 28/09/1976. The First Chairman is Captain Peter Grunau.
The purpose of the association is to provide non-material and material support for the “Seefahrtschule Leer” (Faculty of Maritime Studies at the University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer with the associated specialist degrees programmes).
To this end, the first training ship (MS “Ems”), which was successfully operated until 1995 but then had to be sold due to ageing, was acquired in 1977.
The “Stadt Leer” barge, which the association took over operation of from the City of Leer in 1992, predominantly served as a replacement. In addition the Auror, an ex barrel laying vessel, served the University from 1998-2008. Anyone who would like to support the association can do so by making material and/or monetary donations and/or through their membership of the sponsors’ association. The relevant donation receipts can be provided.
The minimum membership contribution for natural persons is €12.-/year, for legal entities (companies) it is €60.-/year.
