5. Who signs a contract at the FU Berlin?
Every contract at FU Berlin must be signed by the President of FU Berlin or an authorized deputy of the Central University Administration (Chancellor or other authorized deputies) in order to become legally binding.
In general the Head of the Research Department is the authorized deputy in research-related matters.
Here at FU Berlin all types of research-related contracts are to be co-signed by the scientific project management. By doing so the scientific project manager expresses his/her understanding and consent on the contract terms (especially in regard to research-related contents and tasks).
Contracts that are signed only by the scientific project management have no binding effect for FU Berlin.
