Health at the TU Ilmenau
The University Health Management (UGM) of TU Ilmenau supports employees and students in their performance.
We are convinced that health is an important prerequisite for successful work and study. The UGM therefore includes both individual preventive measures and the creation of health-promoting conditions. An ergonomically designed workplace, health courses and psychosocial counselling are just a small excerpt from the UGM programme.
The starting point for the UGM is surveys and health reports. From these, the needs of staff and students are systematically determined, goals derived, and measures for the target groups developed and evaluated, taking into account diversity aspects and equal opportunities. Effectiveness and sustainability are important to us, which is why we implement the UGM program with internal partners and Techniker Krankenkasse.
Our offers for employees, such as health courses, preventive measures or active breaks, are designed to promote healthy working and bring more movement into the often sedentary working day.
At TU Ilmenau, we have been implementing health promotion measures in cooperation with Techniker Krankenkasse since 2010. Since 2017, Techniker Krankenkasse has also supported the Austauschforum "Von Hochschule für Hochschule" and since 2020 the further development of Student Health Management at TU Ilmenau.
Exchange forum "From university for university
Under the umbrella brand "Healthy Universities in Thuringia", the exchange forum "From University to University" was founded in 2017. Techniker Krankenkasse is a sponsor, technical expert, initiator and companion of the exchange forum. Nine of ten Thuringian universities and the Studierendenwerk Thüringen joined the exchange forum in 2017. The project management and coordination are located at TU Ilmenau.
Working Group for Health Promoting Universities
The Working Group for Health Promoting Universities (AGH) has existed since 1995 and was founded by the Landesvereinigung für Gesundheit Niedersachsen e. V. (since 2008: Landesvereinigung für Gesundheit und Akademie für Sozialmedizin Niedersachsen e. V.) and the Forschungsverbund Gesundheits- wissenschaften Niedersachsen (FGN). The TU Ilmenau is a long-standing member of the AGH.
Competence Center Health Promoting University
The Competence Center Health Promoting Universities (KGH) would like to further develop and expand Occupational Health Management (OHM) and Student Health Management (SGM) together with actors from universities and support them with a variety of activities and offers. The TU Ilmenau is represented in the advisory board of the KGH and regularly participates in the offers.
The HochschulNetzwerk SuchtGesundheit (University Network AddictionHealth) is an association of experts and interested persons from universities, colleges and university hospitals who are active in workplace addiction prevention, employee counselling and health promotion. It emerged in 2001 from the nationwide conferences on "Workplace addiction prevention and health promotion at universities and university hospitals" and has continued to develop.
