ARL Headquarters

The Academy’s Headquarters in Hannover is the centre of management and co-ordination for the ARL, as well as a source of impulses for work in the network. A certain amount of independent and complementary research is also conducted here.

The Headquarters organises the ongoing activities in the network and supports the undertakings of the ARL groups. The scientific staff tackle both research and advisory tasks, providing the information and advice that represent an important part of the service function of the ARL. They also publish in their own right and pursue their own research.

The Headquarters consists of the Secretary General with three assigned staff positions, six Academic Sections (AS), and five sections (CS) providing central services. The latter are subsumed in the Central Department (CD) headed up by the Deputy Secretary General. A total of 40 members of staff work at the Headquarters (as of 07/2018).
