Leibniz-IZW Academy

In February 2017, we founded the Leibniz-IZW Academy. Since then, it has been offering regularly recurring, highly qualified, paid and, if possible, certified education programmes for special professional groups. The aim of the academy is to impart specialist expertise from zoo and wildlife research specifically to special target groups. This includes freelance consultants, veterinarians, animal keepers, voluntary conservationists or representatives of authorities. This serves to make our knowledge available to interested parties who normally do not have access to the science-internal education programmes such as summer schools and congresses.

In the near future, we will again offer workshops at the IZW under limited conditions and special hygiene rules. You can find our hygiene plan here (in German, pdf 155 KB).
