The University Board is the governing body of the university. It oversees quality assurance in teaching, research, technology transfer, academic continuing education, gender mainstreaming, decision-making and administrative processes, as well as the university's organizational structure.
Universities of Applied Sciences (Fachhochschulen) are catalysts for the digital, technological, and sustainable transformation of the economy and society. Their unique strength lies in the dual qualifications of their professors, distinguished by both academic credentials and several years of professional expertise in non-academic institutions.
The four state-run Universities of Applied Sciences in Schleswig-Holstein (Fachhochschule Kiel, Fachhochschule Westküste, Hochschule Flensburg, and Technische Hochschule Lübeck) consider it their mission to harness this substantial potential for digital and technological transformation.
In 2021, they joined forces to collaboratively draw appropriate conclusions for Schleswig-Holstein alongside academia, government, and society.

The establishment of an innovation agency to support the transfer of application-oriented research, as it already exists in many other countries, is expressly endorsed at Technische Hochschule Lübeck. Together with Dr. Anna Christmann (Bündnis 90/Die Grünen), Kai Gehring (Bündnis 90/Die Grünen) and Prof. Dr. Hans-Hennig von Grünberg (University of Potsdam), President Dr. Muriel Helbig formulated a position paper, which advocates the establishment of a national agency for the promotion of innovation and knowledge/technology transfer (D.Innova). The creation of D.Innova was included in the German government's coalition agreement of October 12, 2021, and will be named the German Agency for Transfer and Innovation (DATI).
