TALENTA at Fraunhofer IAF
Fraunhofer IAF continuously supports three to four female employees within the TALENTA program. Until 2017, the current head of the department »Microelectronics« and deputy director of IAF, Jutta Kühn, also took part in »TALENTA speed up«. This helped her shape her career:
»I used the TALENTA program to specifically prepare myself for my new position as head of department with a responsibility for 50 employees. The so-called ›career time‹ and the offers for further trainings in combination with networking opportunities and sharing experiences with other TALENTA participants, I was able to settle into my new role efficiently and quickly.«
Vera Klinger, group leader »Process control«, joined the »TALENTA speed up« program to focus more on scientific work. For her, the special benefit of the program lies in the exchange and networking with other female scientist from different career levels – to see how others pursue their career path and to exchange opinions and ideas in a personal and informal setting.
Anli Ding was recommended to the »TALENTA start«program when she started her doctoral position at IAF. She has already benefited from individual training opportunities.
