Scientific Management

Professional scientific management organizes the administrative aspects of research in the Cluster of Excellence. The Central Office, with its departments of finance, PR & marketing, support for junior researchers, and gender equality, provides an optimum administrative infrastructure for CECAD to support its research scientists in their work.

Close cooperation between basic scientific and clinical CECAD research groups, the Cologne University Hospital, and the Max Planck Institutes on campus has allowed a unique center for aging research to be established. The Central Office cooperates with the University of Cologne and the University Hospital administrative offices, and is in communication with the funding bodies. In addition, it organizes the executive board of the Cluster of Excellence, the faculty board of the Research Center, and the administration of the Technology Platform.

Administrative Tasks
Other tasks include coordinating individual user requests and organizing applications to finance basic equipment, the purchase of large equipment, and commissioning. CECAD organizes congresses and participation in conferences, seminars and presentations, as well as international retreats, all of which provide scientists with opportunities for international networking, while discussion of the latest research topics inevitably generates new information.

The Cluster of Excellence has made a dynamic start to its second funding period, after positive assessments from the DFG and the Wissenschaftsrat. The Central Office ensures the implementation of the focus areas, such as intensifying translational research and promoting young scientists, and contributes greatly to CECAD’s success and further promoting internationalisation.
