The research of the chair will be planned and conducted in cooperation with Royal Auris Group. The chair will support the professionals working within Auris, contribute to their professional development, and make results and products of research available to them. The research tasks of the chair also include acquisition of research funds and contracts.
Teaching (0.1 FTE)
