Career Planning

At the Potsdam Science Park we welcome up to 750 young scientists from all over the world every year. They get to know the park and the region from different perspectives, and many decide to build a long-term future in their new home.

We would like to support these plans with our programmes and thus excite highly qualified professionals about the Potsdam Science Park and the Berlin/Brandenburg region for the long term.

Our career planning offerings are open to all young professionals from the Potsdam Science Park.

Career Paths at the Potsdam Science Park and in the Region

Conscious career planning begins with self-reflection and knowledge of the opportunities.

At the Potsdam Science Park and in the region, there are various career paths you can take – at the research institutes, at the local companies, as a founder of your own business, or at NGOs, ministries and public authorities.

We would be happy to support you in your planning with our workshops and offerings.
