Onboarding for newly-appointed professors

Welcome to Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg.

We hope that our new onboarding programme FAUwelcome will help you get off to the best possible start and make it easier for you to settle into your busy and demanding job at the University. The programme is offered over and above the activities the faculties offer to newly appointed professors and is aimed at giving a bigger picture of the various services and facilities available at FAU for research, teaching, human resources, administration, PR and knowledge transfer. The programme offers you the perfect opportunity to find out all about our University and meet the various points of contact throughout FAU. The varied and entertaining format also offers plenty of scope for networking and sharing experiences.

FAUwelcome is held once a year, with a total of six events in the winter semester.
