We visited the Humboldt Universityof Berlin, Germanywithin the Erasmus+ Staff Mobility between the 6th and 10th of May 2019. The customized programme was very extensive, varied and above all instructive. We were introduced to the Facility Management and procurement, as well as to the university’s future projects and challenges during this 5-day-long stay.
We were very impressed by the exchange of experiences with the staff and various presentations that were introduced to us by the department of the Technical Services. Especially interesting were the discussions with administrative staff on problems that we have to tackle in Vienna too. We considered a variety of proposed solutions with the respective department heads.
The Humboldt Universityof Berlin (HU Berlin) – until 1949 named as the Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität – was founded in 1809 as the Universität zu Berlin. The oldest one out of four Berlin universities has been offering the teacher education since autumn 1810. Nowadays, the university is the second largest university in Berlin and has its head office in the Prince Henry’s Palace on the boulevard Unter den Linden (“under the linden”) in Berlin’s historical centre.
The HU Berlin – at which studied 29 Nobel Prize winners, among other things – is one of the 20 largest higher education institutions in Germany and has an excellent international reputation.
