The Coordination Office is responsible for the organizational handling of the IMPRS‑TP. It supports the spokesperson and the steering committee, organizes the general meetings as well as the PhD curriculum, symposia, workshops and selection procedures and supports the speakers of the students in organizing the student retreat. The Coordination Office monitors each student’s acquired credit points and collects the reports of Thesis Advisory Committee meetings. Further, the Coordination Office serves as the main contact for all students of the IMPRS‑TP regarding administrational questions.
