It is equiped with a laptop, a beamer, a flipchart, notice boards, a facilitator's toolcase (including markers, colored cards, pins, etc.), and a standing desk. Power outlets are provided. Overhead projectors, TV-monitors, a CD player, a microphone, etc. can be provided upon request.

Please note that the seminar room may be used for lectures and colloquia in the evenings. Therefore, we ask you to tidy the room and take along your personal belongings, even if the course continues the next day.

If you wish to photocopy material before the seminar, you are welcome to make use of our photocopying machine.


Each seminar is evaluated. We will send you the report, so that you have a feedback about your seminar. We would like to ask you to inform the participants about the evaluation, to provide the link to the online evaluation and to underline the importance of their participation both for you and for us.


Participants receive a certificate upon participation by email.  Participants who were absent for more than 20% of the time don't receive a certificate.

Additionally, participants receive a supplement to the certificate with information about the course topics. We will approach you in this regard in due time, as we need your support for generating the master supplement for your course.
