Hermann von Helmholtz-Zentrum für Kulturtechnik

Zentralinstitut der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin

Membership – Members

The members of the Hermann von Helmholtz Centre (HZK) consist of first and second members. All members of the HZK have the right to vote. Honorary professors, associate professors, private lecturers, university emeritus professors, lecturerships, visiting professors and guest lecturers have passive voting rights.

Initial membership
Initial members are employees of the HZK, including those who are financed by third-party funds. Assistant lecturers whose teaching assignments are awarded directly by the HZK are also first members.

Secondary Membership
Members of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin who are employed at an institute as professors, research assistants or employees in technology, service and administration can apply for a second membership at the HZK according to § 29 of the constitution of the Humboldt-Universität. With a second membership, scientists and scholars document their affiliation and collaboration at the HZK and, in particular, their interest in inter- and transdisciplinary collaboration in research and teaching. Secondary membership also opens up the right to vote and stand for election to the decision-making bodies of the HZK, in particular to the Centre Council.
For admission as a second member, the approval of the faculty and institute council of the home faculty must be obtained. As soon as the informal application for second membership and the approvals have been received at the HZK, the Centre Council of the HZK will vote on the second membership. After the vote has been taken, the faculty, institute and second member are informed by a protocol excerpt.
Please send applications for second membership to the following address: hzk.geschaeftsfuehrung@hu-berlin.de
