Lectures for Students

The Chemistry | Biology | Pharmacy Information Center is actively involved in the education of students in the study programs of the Department of Chemistry and Applied Biosciences, the Department of Biology and the Department of Materials.

The use of the numerous scientific information resources that are available today is essential for successful research including the planning, implementation and evaluation of experiments. Additionally, also the various information solutions are indispensable for effectively communicating research and research results.

The Information Center is involved in both areas and begins with the training of students alredy in the 1st semester. The slides of the lectures and introductions given by the Information Center that are part of various courses, are available for downloading as PDFs on this page.

Additionally the Information Center also presents Coffee Lectures, which are of interest for students as well researchers.
