Vice president for strategic development, junior scholars, and teacher education Professor Angela Ittel contributed expertise gained in her work in the advancement of junior scholars to the Alliance application.
I was involved in shaping the “Promoting Talents” field of action within the Alliance. The planned activities are based very directly on our efforts to provide the work of junior scholars at TU Berlin with a more visible structure, compatible in terms of content and organization within the Alliance. Junior scholars will be able to profit enormously from the major opportunities to participate in inter-university offers. Collectively, we will be able to react much more dynamically and effectively to educational requirements. Additionally, I represented the cross-cutting themes of diversity and gender equality as well as internationalization at all levels of our application. The most recent successes in these areas at TU Berlin - with their visibility increased in part through the latest awarding of the “HRK Re-Audit” certification - mean that we have been able to contribute many ideas to the Alliance. Continued cooperation in these areas will help make Berlin an extremely attractive center of science and research with a global presence.
