House of Professors: Spirit of Innovation, Joy & Diversity

With the House of Professors concept – spirit of innovation, joy & diversity – Trier University of Applied Sciences plans to implement innovative recruiting and qualification methods over the next six years.

The aim is to actively shape the generation change at the university. To this end, new job models such as the Tandem Professorship, the Specialist Professorship and the Family Professorship are being tested in practice.

The qualification of the next generation of academic teachers is paramount when setting up a doctoral program for intelligent technologies for sustainable development. Young Researchers’ and International Researchers’ Sabbaticals create new means of access to Trier University of Applied Sciences.

The House of Professors comprises the impact areas of joy, spirit of innovation and diversity, which correspond precisely to the three main tasks of a university: teaching and training future specialists, application-oriented research and knowledge and technology transfer.

Central measures have been assigned to each impact area.

In teaching, the focus is on the joy of working with young people, the autonomy to encourage and promote them through the Step In mentoring program, the development of the employer profile and the expansion of access to the university for academics through Young Researchers’ Sabbaticals.

In research, we support the spirit of innovation with new job models such as the Tandem Professorship, the Specialist Professorship and the establishment of a doctoral program in the field of intelligent technologies for sustainable development, which is also one of the university’s research focus areas.

When it comes to knowledge and technology transfer, diversity in our regional and international cooperation programs is important to us. That is why we promote access for international researchers. We would also like to continue to improve the compatibility of family and career with special Family Professorships for people with nursing, childcare or other care responsibilities.
