Due to the increasing number of students at Universities of Applied Sciences (Hochschule für angewandte Wissenschaften – HAW), the universities’ demand for more skilled applicants is rising as well.

At the same time, it has become visible that the degree of familiarity of this career path is still relatively low.

For this reason, the University of Kassel as well as the Hochschule Fulda decided to launch a ten months lasting further qualification programme, which is financed by funds of the BMBF (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung). The aim of “quali.prof@HAW” consists of increasing the interest of Postdocs and PhDs in their completion phase, as well as preparing and qualifying them for obtaining and leading a professorship for Applied Sciences in a structured way.

Due to the cooperation the events will take place in Fulda as well as in Kassel. The participants will therefore visit events at both facility locations.
