The objective of the round tables is to open a dialog between junior scholars and target groups involved in the advancement of junior scholars at TU Berlin for the discussion and development of ideas and measures in this area. The round tables are part of the Strategy for the Advancement of Junior Scholars at TU Berlin passed by the Academic Senate in July 2018.
On 1 April 2022, Prof. Dr. Sophia Becker was elected Vice President for Sustainability, Internal Communication, Transfer and Transdisciplinarity and also entrusted with the promotion of young scholars. Since direct exchange is very important to her, we have jointly decided to use two round tables to enter into an exchange with both groups, doctoral candidates and postdocs, and to talk about the current situation, goals and wishes.

19th Round Table Discussion for Junior Scholars on 5 May 2022, 14:00 - 15:30
Topic: Social opening of the doctorate - social origin of the doctoral candidates
At this round table, questions regarding the social composition of doctoral researchers were highlighted and discussed, as well as how the perspective of "first-generation junior scholars" can be made more visible and audible at the TU Berlin, and which support structures make sense for this target group.
At the 18th Roundtable, on December 16, 2021 from 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm, the significance of the BerlHG amendment for the promotion of young researchers was discussed once again. President Prof. Dr. Thomson and Vice President Prof. Dr. Schrader participated in this round table to discuss the importance of the BerlHG amendment for the promotion of young researchers and the current developments. Points of the amendment that have not been discussed much so far were also discussed, such as the design of a doctoral student representation at the TU Berlin.
