PLan_CV: Rethinking professorial careers at universities of applied sciences
TH Köln has launched the project “PLan_CV”. Its goal: Finding excellent candidates for professorial careers at universities of applied sciences. The project’s budget of 12.8 million Euros is funded through the Federal Ministry of Education and Research program “FH-Personal” (staff for universities of applied sciences).
By 2030, TH Köln will need to fill at least 136 professorial positions, ideally with outstanding candidates. This is where the project PLan_CV comes in. Its goals: increasing the attractiveness of professorial positions at universities of applied sciences, strengthening dual qualifications (with academic and vocational components), and achieving greater permeability between the academic world and the business sector. The project focuses on holistic academic staff development and aims to benefit everyone involved – staff, university and its partners. Above all, TH Köln seeks to promote equal opportunities, diversity and reconciliation of family and work life.
