Our programme consists of two formats – micro-sessions and in-depth seminars – which address such topics as management in academia, interdisciplinary skills, career development, scientific working methods and academic teaching. We offer special seminars for junior researchers with tenure track which highlight the various phases of the tenure process. The seminars are given by University colleagues and external experts. For more details, click on the programme profiles below.
The events are free of charge and can be attended in any order. Registration is required. After completing the course, you will be sent written confirmation of participation.
The thematic focus of each seminar is strongly tailored to the needs of the target group. Please contact us for information on our current programme and feel free to share your wishes with us!
