    • childcare beyond the opening hours of their regular childcare facility
    • childcare during a conference or other academic events
    • childcare while being on a business trip
    • childcare during any other unusual situation
    • a drop-off and/or pick-up assistance
  • Babysitter: We can also bear the expenses for a babysitter/ nurse of your choice if you are not employed at TUD.
  • Equipment for remote work: To make it easier for you to successfully combine your scientific career and taking on home-based caring responsibilities (e. g. taking care of your children up to age of twelve), we can equip you with a laptop and necessary accessories for working from home.
