Education and Further Education, training offers

Event overview of the BUA partners

The Berlin University Alliance supports education and training measures that impart theoretical and practical knowledge in the fields of research quality and open science and contributes to their expansion. This also includes own and jointly funded formats of the partner institutions.

The overview of current offerings of the further education institutions and graduate schools of the partner institutions provides insight into a variety of opportunities to integrate research quality and open science into the institution's own work practice. The Events are often open to all members of the partner institutions.

The overview of the range of events offered by the partner institutions in the download area is by no means comprehensive. Feel free to comment if you know of any other events that should be included in this overview.
