Retiring from the University
When retiring from the university for age reasons, the third party funding projects you are running must be concluded in a timely manner.
If you retire early for other reasons, then currently running projects should be transferred over to another project leader from the University of Giessen in order to avoid compensation claims. If you would like to transfer a project as part of a move to another college / research institution, please obtain the consent of the sponsor.
Contact the Research Office in order to arrange the necessary further steps.
Inform the faculty dean or the institution leader about the intended change (§52 Para. 2 HHG).
Remaining expenditures from already concluded third party funding projects generally remain with the University of Giessen when moving to another college / research institution. The presidium with participation from the respective dean's office decides how to further use them.
For the researcher to use money from completed third party funding projects for research purposes after retirement or upon receiving emeritus status, he/she needs the consent of the presidium. The same applies to continued use of income from movable assets, e.g. laptops, PDAs, laboratory equipment, etc. Please send via official channels a substantiated claim in order to receive consent for further use of these funds. This also applies to the necessary SAP access for the presidium. Please clarify beforehand to which cost center / organizational unit the affected project should be assigned after your retirement.
