”The university is the place of scientific encounter in the community of teachers and learners, it is the place of research and teaching.” The central administration provides support services to ensure efficient research and teaching. To optimise these processes, Leipzig University aims to achieve a high level of digitalisation.

Digitisation strategy

On the one hand, the Central Administration ensures university operations and, on the other, offers researchers and teachers a wide range of support processes. We support these processes through IT and software support as well as through participation in digitisation projects. In order to take into account the continuous improvement of processes at the University of Leipzig, we are available with our technology competences and realise the technology implementation and introduction of digitisation projects on behalf of the central administration.

Digitisation projects

In order to remain competitive in the future and to continuously improve the range of IT services, we are working with the Central Administration to implement a variety of digitisation projects that will later be integrated as IT services into the service portfolio of the University Computer Centre.
