The road to your personal and professional development

In order to support the personal and professional development of our employees, we have implemented a Training & Development Programme which includes seminars and workshops designed not only to deepen their knowledge in selected areas, but also to complement their particular field, allowing them to explore new positions and roles in their careers.

The focus of the Training & Development Programme:

  • Scientific work
  • Project management
  • Financial and legal topics
  • Teamwork and communication
  • Leadership and People Management
  • Entrepreneurship

Our scientists and research engineers can opt for international mobility including short- or long-term research stays abroad at academic institutions or project partners. This will allow our experts to establish an international network and to grow their professional and personal expertise.

Furthermore, our entrepreneurship programme helps colleagues at AIT to establish spin-offs.
