The fields of finance and controlling belong to the administrative unit’s finance/controlling/procurement remit. Due to this wide-ranging subject area, plenty and quite diverse tasks emerge. On one hand, the team is responsible for the Institute’s accounting, the preparation of the annual financial statement, as well as the financial proof of disposition for third-party projects; on the other hand, the team also deals with tax-related matters. Moreover, the team issues monthly reports advising the management, the department heads, as well as the heads of the different administrative and research units.
