Are you a professional working in Communication and Marketing, Innovation Offices, International Offices, University Libraries, Strategy and Leadership or Welcome Services for Staff?

We are happy to invite you to participate in Freie Universität Berlin’s 12th International Staff Training Week, which will take place for five full days from June 10 to June 14, 2024.

Five units of Freie Universität Berlin’s central university administration, the Office of Communication and Marketing, Profund Innovation, the University Library, the Welcome Service within FUB's Personnel Division as well as the Office of International Affairs have created a total of six interactive programs to engage with colleagues from all over the world during the five-day event. The programs will allow enough time for sharing expertise, developing competences and peer learning as well as for networking, strengthening partnerships and socially interacting with colleagues from all tracks.


The pulse of Innovation at Profund Innovation

A well-designed innovation process is characterized by a perfect interplay of awareness raising, scouting, coaching, networking and transfer, creating an environment that generates breakthrough innovations. Explore this dynamic ecosystem by participating in the Profound Innovation Track during the International Staff Training Week 2024 at Freie Universität Berlin. This exclusive program offers you the unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the inner workings of the institution through hands-on job shadowing.

As part of this specialized program, we are excited to offer two individuals at time the chance to immerse themselves in our daily work processes of our Innovation Management, Founders Advisor and Technology Transfer Team.



If you are interested in participating in one of the tracks, we invite you to fill in the online application form on our website. The deadline for applications is February 5, 2024. The selection will be made on the basis of the information provided in the application form and the results will be emailed to all applicants in early March 2024. Please do not make travel arrangements before your participation is confirmed.



The language of the Staff Training Week is English, so fluency in English (speaking, listening, reading, writing) is required.


Please have a look at the attached draft program and get in touch with us in case of questions. The draft programs will be updated after the selection phase ended to also include input and good practice from participants.
