Six stages to professional success

As part of the project “Zirkel.Training ”, the Prosperkolleg e.V. developed a series of events with university partners from NRW, which deals with the topic of Circular Growth and aims to motivate Students to become transformation participants at an early stage.

Aimed at students in their bachelor’s and master’s courses, the series displays the current state of science and practice in a way that is appropriate for the target group, and tries to inspire enthusiasm for the topic and stimulate discourse.

Subsequently, the students should be qualified for sustainable, future-oriented jobs. Disciplinary, professional, and interdisciplinary training, along with an inter and trans disciplinary understanding of the topic is required. This is how specialists are trained that can use their know-how in the area of circular growth to aid in the transformation of existing companies and generate ideas for new start-ups.  

The events occurred in the  2021 summer semester and the 2021/22 winter semester.
