The University of Freiburg supports its employees in acquiring or strengthening their skills.

"We want to provide our various target groups with a high-quality offer and have new topics in all areas in our program," says IWB Director Ruth Meßmer. The overview can be found on the IWB homepage. In order not to have to search long for a suitable seminar, the program is divided into seven subject areas: “Internal know-how/administrative practice,” “Communication and management,” “Leadership skills,”, “Languages,” “Media and IT,” “Technology, laboratory and occupational safety” and “Promoting workplace health.” It also lists the target groups to which the respective services are directed. These include executives, administrative staff, scientists, technical and laboratory staff and trainees.

Registration for the first half of the year is now open. A new feature that has been added this year includes registration is now possible exclusively via the web-based HISinOne program. The login data are the same as for “MyAccount.”
