As a central coordination office, we deal with strategic methods to professionally implement the project portfolio. The central department is entrusted with comprehensive projects that affect several areas of the University of Potsdam. We work according to the PRINCE2 method.
Due to its spatial distribution, the high number of students and the changed learning habits, the University of Potsdam has the ambition to provide more student learning areas. Thanks to mobile devices, learning can take place anywhere on campus. The existing capacities in the buildings are to be better used and new capacities created so that individual and group work can be carried out outside lecture halls and seminar rooms.
We have compiled an overview [German] of the various locations of the self-learning zones for you.

The mailroom is also undergoing digital change and is preparing for the scanning of incoming mail: In connection with the e-invoice project, a scanning station will be set up for early, replacement and legally compliant scanning. In a first step, this will support the process of electronic invoice processing and later form the basis for the digitization of incoming mail as part of electronic administrative work using electronic files and document management systems. In the long term, the majority of the total volume is to be digitized in a single scanning unit. Data protection and security in particular play an important role in this project, the working basis being the TR RESISCAN of the BSI (Federal Office for Information Security).
This project is supervised by Jelka Hönicke.
The E-Invoicing Act establishes a binding legal basis for the receipt and processing of electronic invoices by public contractors. Following these guidelines, a Document Management System (DMS) is to be introduced, which adheres to the legal requirements. The DMS will cover future needs and enable the user to comfortably process documents, files and invoices.
This project is supervised by Jelka Hönicke and Norman Lingott.
The Griebnitzsee campus is home to various scientific and research institutions, making it difficult to identify the University buildings. Especially when traveling by train from Potsdam or Berlin, orientation is difficult. The lettering promotes the area of the University of Potsdam better and points rail travelers in the right direction.

The University of Potsdam wants to make bicycles available to its staff for commuting between locations and for appointments in other locations. In the future, every employee will be able to use a bicycle to avoid traveling by car, bus or train. This primarily promotes health and protects the environment. Employees will have more flexibility and get to know the Potsdam area better. In particular, bicycle sponsors support this cooperative endeavor. By borrowing bicycles from colleagues, new contacts are established and cross-departmental networking will be actively promoted.
The project website [German] offers further information.

The bicycle is becoming increasingly popular between students and employees as a flexible means of transport. Due to the distance between the three large University locations, the few parking spaces on-site and the generally scarce transport infrastructure, the use of the bicycle for students, employees and guests is to be promoted. Active mobility by bicycle requires framework conditions that can be provided by simple measures. In addition to the already offered parking spaces, bicycle columns are to be installed to repair the most frequent damage. Whether shaky parts or too little air in the tire - with the repair stations, which contain the most common tools for free use, many problems can be solved on-site.

The University of Potsdam had the honour to host the 60th Annual Conference of the Chancellors of the Universities of Germany on the topic "Cooperation and Competition - Universities and their Partners under Increased Competitive Conditions? The conference took place from 21 to 23 September 2017 in Potsdam.
This project was supervised by Christian Stempfl and Norman Lingott.
We would like to thank all those involved for their cooperation and commitment.
