Inhalt des Dokuments



ProMotion International adds to the long-established German program ProMotion by a number of seminars in English. While the German program is offered by the Main Woman’s Representative ProMotion International is supported through the STIBET program of the DAAD and aims to complement the heterogeneous academic supervision and service offers made by central units for further education (ZEWK and IIWB) and the TU-DOC Office.

The aim is to encourage and accompany women during the PhD process to continuously pursue and successfully complete their degree. Joining women in a network offers not only support and additional motivation but also an excellent opportunity to gain information and strategic knowledge. Thus equipped, they are well prepared for a wide variety of future career options.
