Career Network

Through collaborations with other research institutes focusing on digitalisation topics, the Weizenbaum Institute connects researchers in Germany, Europe, and across the world.

Since fall 2020, the Bavarian Research Institute for Digital Transformation (bidt), the Center for Advanced Internet Studies (CAIS), and the Weizenbaum Institute have been involved in a working group for academic career development. In April 2021, this collaboration was institutionalised in a formal agreement.

Apart from joint events such as the Digitalisation Research and Network Meeting in April 2021 for doctoral researchers, there are plans to initiate a trainer pool and joint training programmes as well as activities to promote networking, e.g., through extended research visits.

Permanent members of the working group currently include Maria Staudte (bidt), Nina Hahne (CAIS), Claudia Oellers (WI), and Julian Vuorimäki (WI) (as of 08/2021).
