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.

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, or calmly working because you know your child is being well taken care of at the Campus Kindergarten. For the employees at the park, such things are a matter of course.

As the network hub of all the partners at the Potsdam Science Park, we help you take good care of yourself. Because a successful work-life integration requires a strong awareness of your own personal resources.

Mental Health / Relaxation

Gesund führen: Belastungen verstehen, erkennen und handhaben

Beanspruchung ist nicht gleich Stress!

Was für den Einen eine starke Beanspruchung ist, empfindet der Andere erst als echte Motivation. Wie unterschiedlich wird Stress also wahrgenommen und woran erkennt man, dass jemand überlastet ist?

Der Workshop hilft ein Bewusstsein für Belastung und Beanspruchung, Warnsignale und Stressfolgen bei sich selbst und bei den Mitarbeiter:innen zu entwickeln und gibt Handlungsempfehlungen und Tipps für und im Umgang mit belasteten und beanspruchten Mitarbeiter:innen.

Dieser Workshop fand am 25. Oktober 2022 statt. Haben Sie Fragen zum Thema oder wünschen sich die Nachbereitung des Workshops? Setzen Sie sich bitte mit unserer Ansprechpartnerin in Verbindung.

Relaxation and immune boosting through cold exposure

Already the “water doctor” Sebastian Kneipp knew about the healing effect of cold water. In this workshop, we invite you to learn about the positive influences on mental health, in addition to strengthening the immune system. For example, cold regulates the autonomic nervous system and can thus contribute to deep relaxation, improved digestion and more balance. At the same time, cold impulses bring the sleep-wake rhythm into balance.

Exciting side effect: The “courage muscle” is trained and fears are reduced.

The workshop took place on November 9, 2022. Please get in touch with our contact person, if you would like to receive more information about this topic.

Resilience - Your natural protector

In these times of uncertainty and fear, resilience is more important than ever. It is considered the superpower of the human spirit par excellence. Resilience refers to the ability to cope with stress and crisis while remaining healthy. In other words, exactly what each of us needs in these extraordinary times with new stressors and pressures. In our interactive online workshop, we will take a closer look at our mental superpower and see what resilience actually means.

The workshop took place on January 27, 2022. Would you like more information about our workshops? Feel free to get in touch with our contact person.


Uncomplicated and at unbeatable prices: The team at the Academic Sports Center also offers massages for employees of the Potsdam Science Park (booking: status group 3). At the “Massage Knetpunkt” on the university’s campus in Golm, trained physiotherapists offer you a short relaxation phase from your daily work routine.

Please note, that not all team members will speak English fluently. A translated note about your preconditions and needs might help to enhance your experience.


Inclusion Café

The inclusion team of the University of Potsdam invites you to a regular inclusion café. A monthly meeting is planned at one university location each (every 3 months in Golm). In a cozy atmosphere, people with health impairments can get into conversation with others affected. The personal exchange and the experience of others can help to better cope with barriers and problems in everyday work and private life.

Registration is requested. Internationals are welcome.


Podcasts „Wir sind UP“

With the adoption of the inclusion concept, the University of Potsdam is on its way to becoming “A University for All”. But what does it look like in concrete terms? How and what do students with disabilities experience in relation to their studies at the university and how do staff and lecturers deal with the individual needs of students?


The Academic Sports Center is our cooperation partner for more movement at Potsdam Science Park. 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.

The courses are accessible to all employees at Potsdam Science Park (status group 3). 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.
