Head of department HR International, Fraunhofer

Internationality, innovation and sustainability are Annika Gehrmann’s core competencies. As Head of Department HR International , she is constantly breaking new ground with her team so that excellent research in international teams is possible in Germany and researchers can gain further qualifications during stays abroad. She sees the administrative hurdles of researcher mobility as a challenge that she is happy to face, also on a European level.

As a well-organized, strategically thinking and collaborative leader, empathy and employee motivation are her constant companions. Female empowerment and strong networks are the icing on the cake.

Her second passion is voluntary climate protection, which she also promotes internationally as an EU Climate Pact Ambassador and as the founder of a municipal initiative for climate neutrality.
