Start of New Study Course for Science Managers at the German University of Administrative Sciences10.04.2012 - (idw) Deutsche Universität für Verwaltungswissenschaften Speyer
With the ceremonial opening by the Rhineland-Palatinate minister for education, science, further education and culture, Doris Ahnen, a new maser study course "MPA Science Management" starts at the 16th April 2012 at the German University of Administrative Sciences Speyer. The University has developed this course in cooperation with the Centre for Science Management (ZWM). Thereby it reacts to the increasing demand for an encompassing programme of further education for staff members at higher education institutions and public research institutions who have to cope with steadily new requirements.
The changed situation is owed to new forms of organization, funding and support of scientific institutions, their increasing internationalization and the growing relevance of knowledge and technology transfer. Thus the members of staff are confronted to more and more difficult decisions and need strategic competencies and cross-sectional expertise. The study course aims to impart encompassing knowledge as to the new instruments and framework of science management and to enhance the own competencies.
The study course is conceived in an extra-occupational way and is explicitly interdisciplinary, as the complex topic cannot be linked to a single discipline. For illustrating how theoretical knowledge can be transferred to the workaday life the curriculum is based on a tandem principle with teaching by renowned scientists as well as experienced executive managers of scientific institutions.
Due to its broad disciplinary orientation, its close link between theory and practice and its extra-occupational concept, the MPA Science Management is a novelty in the German context.
