Promoting junior researchers at Münster University

Promoting junior researchers plays a key role at the University of Münster. The University offers researchers a wide range of options – such as PhDs, graduate schools, junior research groups or associate professorships – in order for them to gain additional qualifications which prepare them for an academic career. For this reason, the Office of Communication and Public Relations has given an intensive and differentiated look at the topic from January to July 2019.

Digitalisation at Münster University

Whether it’s learning platforms such as Moodle, research portals like DigiBib or databases for research such as CRIS@WWU, digitalisation is making a lot of changes at Münster University. In the administration, the importance of the almost paperless office is growing. The University of Münster Press Office examined from January to July 2018 therefore the topic of "Digitalisation at Münster University" and the corresponding challenges in an intensive and differentiated manner.

Work-family balance at Münster University

A lot of staff and students at universities face special challenges when trying to achieve a balance between their family and their career or their studies. Münster University already offers a wide range of help, and this is due to be expanded. From October 2016 to April 2017 the University’s Press Office has therefore taken a detailed look at different aspects of the subject, and the challenges it involves, under the heading of “work-family balance”.

Dossier "WWU international"

The University of Münster (WWU) is characterized in both its teaching and research by a wide diversity of international activities. Internationalization, though, is not an end in itself, but contributes to the profile and competitiveness of the University. From October 2015 to May 2016 the press office of the University therefore devoted itself to the topic of “internationalisation”.
