Situation and prospects of the university location

In conversation with HU President Prof. Dr. Dr. Sabine Kunst

In episode 16 of our VBKI podcast, VBKI Managing Director Claudia Große-Leege talks to the President of the Humboldt University of Berlin, Prof. Dr. Dr. Sabine Kunst, about the situation and prospects for Berlin as a university location.

Berlin's own science and research landscape is one of the city's widely recognized flagships. The success of the Berlin University Alliance - an alliance of the three universities and Charité - in the Excellence Initiative two years ago crowned a positive development in many respects.

 The President of Humboldt Universität zu Berlin talks about the challenge of corona in teaching and the further development of the Alliance, temporary employment contracts in the academic world, the amendment to the Berlin Higher Education Act - and why she is skeptical about the right of UASs to award doctorates.
