The CRC aims to contribute to a better compatibility of work and family commitments. The following services are currently available to CRC members with family duties:
The CRC 1114 provides childcare for children of up to 12 years of age during the CRC colloquium and other CRC events. Upon prior registration, professional babysitters are available on location for the duration of the event. This service is free of charge for CRC members and guests. In addition, the CRC offers emergency childcare for cases of unforeseen conflicts between childcare needs and work requirements. Both measures are organised in cooperation with the Dual Career & Family Service of FU Berlin.
The CRC provides laptops for its members with family duties for when they need to work from home. The laptops can be borrowed and used by all CRC members with children under 12 years of age or with family members in need of home care. All information on how to borrow a laptop can be found here.
Information and counseling
At the FU Berlin, Dual Career & Family Service provides useful information for employees and students with family duties. It also offers individual counseling on all questions regarding childcare or caring for other family members.
