Biotest’s corporate culture

Our employees work independently and with a high level of personal responsibility – but always in a team of highly skilled and supportive co-workers. Creative minds who enjoy demanding projects are welcome at Biotest. In return, we offer diverse tasks and freedom to expand in a supportive community: positions with development potential and multiple promotion possibilities.

Biotest is a modern, medium sized business. Company management is close to the employees and is always ready to listen to their concerns. A positive work environment is a key foundation of our corporate culture.

Biotest supports the Deutschlandstipendium

It is important to us to promote promising young talents with the Deutschlandstipendium. On the one hand, this gives young people the opportunity to develop and, on the other hand, gives perspectives to the Rhine-Main area for the future.

610 scholarships in the funding year 2017/18

With 610 Germany scholarships for the academic year 2017/18, the Goethe University once again achieved one of the best results of the universities in Germany. Around 360 donors with a total of €1.098 million contributed to this. The same amount was added by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, so that the scholarship holders can now enjoy over €300 per month for one year.

Supporting young talented and committed people so that they have their mind free for their studies - this idea is at the center of the Deutschlandstipendium. It was launched by the German Federal Government in the summer of 2010, and since then the Goethe University has been one of the most successful universities in promoting its students. With the Deutschlandstipendium, Goethe University supports its best students.

Goethe Installation at Frankfurt University in summer 2014

At Campus Westend of the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University Professor Ottmar Hörl’s Goethe installation took place in summer 2014.

Prof. Dr. Hörl as a conceptual artist could be convinced to design and produce a series of four hundred figures depicting the man who lent his name to our university. These monochrome sculptures in four colors, which take up the former colors of the university faculties welcomed visitors to the university in summer 2014.

„ Goethe is one of  the most fascinating personalities from Frankfurt. He was cosmopolitan, curious, looking beyond his immediate surroundings and he developed an incredible range in many fields that can serve as inspiration for future generations.“

Prof. Ottmar Hörl
 

„I do not see cultue as an hierarchical concept but instead strive for as many people in a society as possible to be involved with culture .“

Prof. Ottmar Hölr
