Social economist Prof. Dr. Jörg Reitzig was elected as a full member of the selection committee for the awarding of doctoral scholarships at the 51st conference of the Hans Böckler Foundation's liaison lecturers, which took place in Leipzig from 27 to 29 October 2023.
The Hans Böckler Foundation is the foundation of the German Trade Union Confederation (DGB). With over 2,800 scholarship holders, it is one of the largest organizations for the promotion of talented students in Germany. In addition to special academic aptitude, the trade union or socio-political commitment of the applicants plays a special role in the selection process.
As one of six representatives elected by the foundation's liaison lecturers from among their number, he will now represent the concerns and perspectives of the universities of applied sciences (HAW) in particular on the committee over the next two years. At the HWG LU, Prof. Dr. Reitzig has headed the research-oriented Master's degree program in Social Work at the Department of Social and Health Care since 2021.
