The Institutional Strategy: "The Synergetic University"
The Institutional Strategy is embedded in a long-term overall development plan, which the TU Dresden will use to change and further develop its strategies, structures and organisational culture. It includes six action areas to which specific measures are allocated.
The six action areas at a glance:
- TUD People
Acquiring and supporting "top talents" on all steps of the career ladder - from prospective students, to students and gifted junior researchers, up to internationally renowned academics
- TUD Structures
Creating integrated and efficient structures by reorganising the 14 faculties into five schools
- TUD Processes
Decentralising and optimising administrative and support processes, especially as part of the project "TUDo - TU Dresden Optimised"
Developing the unique association DRESDEN-concept further with outstanding non-university research and cultural institutions in Dresden in order to maximise synergy effects for research, teaching and infrastructure and raising the profile of Dresden academia as a decisive locational factor
Increasing the attractiveness of the TUD for international students, junior and senior academics as well as strengthening cooperations with international scientific institutions
Strengthening the TUD in terms of gender equality and as a family-friendly institution through targeted measures to reduce the hurdles for women in academic careers
TU Dresden's Institutional Strategy is funded by the Excellence Initiative of the German Federal and State Governments.
