Health Workshops

At a time when we are all permanently interconnected digitally, the line between our working life and our private life is becoming increasingly blurred. We can find a balance when both areas of our life are flexibly interlocked with each other and we focus on healthy personal connections to other people.

At the Potsdam Science Park, many opportunities have been created to achieve this: using your lunch break for a round of sports, meditating at the nearby lake, calmly working because you know your child is being well taken care of at the Campus Kindergarten or meeting old and new friends at our community events. As the network hub of all the partners at the Potsdam Science Park, we support you in taking good care of yourself.

Upcoming Events


Who is allowed to participate in the health program of the Site Management Golm?

The health program is available to all employees of our contractual partners at Potsdam Science Park—this includes the campus Golm of the University of Potsdam, the Fraunhofer campus, the Max-Planck-campus, the Brandenburgisches Landeshauptarchiv and all companies at GO:IN, GO:IN2 and H-Lab.

Am I as a student/employee of the University of Potsdam allowed to participate in the workshops?

Yes, because the campus Golm is an integral part of the Potsdam Science Park.

How much do I have to pay to participate in the workshops?

The workshops are mostly free of charge thanks to our partners, the healthcare insurances TK and BARMER.

The workshops don´t fit into my schedule. Is there a possibility to participate anyway?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to make the workshop hours fit  everybody´s needs. Some workshops will be offered as a stream for 14 days.

Are only online workshops available?

Yes, in most cases. The online format offers the greatest flexibility due to different living and working locations. Furthermore our room capacities are limited.

Are the workshops recorded?

Depending on the wishes of the trainer and the topic, the workshops are recorded. Some topics require more privacy and therefore won´t be recorded in order to make participants and the trainer feel safe.

Do I have to switch on my camera during the workshops?

We would appreciate it, if you would switch on your camera as we want to create a social atmosphere even in the online space. However, in the end it is the decision of each individual on how to deal it.

How long is the recording available?

In general, the recording is available for 14 days after the workshop.

Why don´t you organize one health day per year?

We would like to allow as many employees as possible to use our service. Therefore, a variety of workshops throughout the year is much more convenient.

Do you organize sports classes as well?

The Academic Sports Center of the University of Potsdam offers a great variety of sports classes during the semester and holidays. Their program is available to all employees at the Potsdam Science Park as well. Please check your status group before registering.

May I send you recommendations or wishes for future workshops?

Of course! We are very happy, if you send your wish/recommendation to

Health Programs at your Employer

While the location management at Potsdam Science Park offers a health program open to all employees at the park, many companies offer inhouse health programs too. They run under the label of a so called “Betriebliches Gesundheitsmanagement” and are mostly organized by the HR-team or a specific team. Please find here a document with all contact persons at the institutes, which offer this service.

Sex- and Gender-sensitive Health

A matter close to our heart is the topic of sex- and gender-sensitive health. This medical approach recognizes that a person’s biological sex and learned behavior in connection to their gender influences their disease pattern. We strive to actively integrate sex- and gender-sensitive aspects into our health management approach. Please find here some ressources to dive deeper into the topic.

"Warum wir geschlech­ter­sen­sible Medizin brau­chen"

Medizin ist ganz schön ungerecht, denn bis heute betrachtet sie den Menschen häufig nicht als Individuum. Antworten darauf, wie die biologischen und soziokulturellen Unterschiede in Bezug auf Gesundheit und Krankheit in Zukunft berücksichtigt werden sollten und wie wir optimal für die Gesundheit vorsorgen, gibt es im Interview.


Heart Attack Symptoms in Women

We’ve all seen the movie scenes where a man gasps, clutches his chest and falls to the ground. In reality, a heart attack victim could easily be a woman, and the scene may not be that dramatic.

Academic Sports Center at University of Potsdam

The University of Potsdam, and specifically the Academic Sports Center, is our cooperation partner for more movement at Potsdam Science Park and other health services. It offers in-person sports courses as well as OnlineFlex tickets. The offer is supplemented by on-demand sports courses as well as relaxation and nutrition podcasts. Some courses are also held in English.

Your moving break!

In order to counteract a lack of movement at the workplace and the associated musculoskeletal complaints, the Academic Sports Center has come up with something very special for employees: an active 15-minute online break during working hours.

For the first time, the Academic Sports Center offers all online courses combined in one ticket, giving you maximum flexibility. You don’t have to commit to one course a week, but can take part in 15 sports courses at different times of the day from Monday to Saturday. Depending on what you’re in the mood for, you can either relax, mobilize or work out. So put together your own individual training plan and decide for yourself when you want to take part in which course in order to achieve your personal goals.
