Management and Coordination
The Scientific Director represents the Center of Advanced Technology for Assisted Learning and Predictive Analytics (CATALPA), conducts its business under his own responsibility and is accountable to the members of the Executive Board. In case he is prevented from doing so, these tasks are taken over by the Deputy Scientific Director.
The management of CATALPA is the responsibility of the Executive Board. It is chaired by the Scientific Director.
The voting members of the Executive Board consist of the Scientific Director, his deputy, the CATALPA professors, in principle the CATALPA members with project management responsibility (if the number is too large, representatives are elected), a representative of the scientific staff and a representative of the cooperation partners. The students are also represented in an advisory capacity, as are the non-scientific employees.
The Administrative Office supports the scientific management in the performance of its tasks and coordinates overarching activities. It is managed by the Administrative Director.
The CATALPA Professorships are one of the core structures of the Research Center. Financed from our own funds and of unlimited duration, they form permanent pillars for the work in the Research Center.
Currently, one Professorship has already been filled and another is on appeal (German). A third professorship is being planned.
Junior Research Group Leaders
The CATALPA Junior Research Groups are one of the core structures of the Research Center. They have a temporary but central role at the CATALPA and are driving forces of the innovative and dynamic collaboration in CATALPA.
So far, three Junior Research Groups have been appointed in competitive procedures.
Our scientists work together in projects on an interdisciplinary basis. The active exchange between individual projects is actively promoted by the Research Center.

Scientific Advisory Board
The Scientific Advisory Board advises CATALPA on fundamental subject-related and interdisciplinary questions of its scientific work.
This includes, in particular, advising on medium-term research and development planning, discussing the activity report submitted by the Scientific Director, making recommendations on scientific programmes, research projects and cooperations, and submitting suggestions and proposals for research groups and projects.
The Scientific Advisory Board consists of 6 members:
Alumnae and Alumni
CATALPA is in contact with these academics through the joint development period and/or completed projects and maintains a good exchange.
