General Approach and Organisational Structure

The CAMPOS Management Team

  • executes all issues decided upon by the Executive Board
  • communicates and reports to the universities and DFG
  • supervises project progress (by participation of spokesperson and/or coordinator at regular meetings of the individual projects)
  • organizes and controls financial administration, including the expenditure of global funds
  • organizes the gender and young reseachers support measures and the public relations activities

Furthermore, the Management Team organizes and maintains the

  • weekly “jour fixe” to discuss day-to-day activities (field campaigns, lab work, etc.)
  • weekly seminar (with internal speakers and invited scientists)
  • annual science meetings for all CAMPOS reserchers in order to discuss the actual progress of all projects and to coordinate further activities
  • thematic workshops to strengthen internal cooperation and to discuss upcoming research strategies
  • yearly general assemblies, held in conjunction with the science meetings or workshops
  • interactions with the public (e.g. by regular "stakeholder meetings" with farmers, members from authorities, etc.)
  • CAMPOS guest scientist programme and the international conference (1st conference unfortunately postponed due to the CORONA outbreak)
  • project management tool "pm.campos.uni-tuebingen.de" (internal) - developed by INF (dropbox, WIKI, meeting & event calendar, etc.)

The CAMPOS Executive Board

is in charge of the scientific orientation, principal leadership and high-level international co-operations of CAMPOS.
