Institute at the Humboldt University
artop was founded in 1995 as "Arbeits- und Technikgestaltung, Organisations- und Personalentwicklung e.V." by employees of the institutes for psychology and computer science and economics at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Two years later a cooperation agreement was concluded with the university. Since then artop has been recognized as an institute.
Today, the artop-Gesellschaft (GbR) and the artop GmbH together form the An-institute artop. The An-Institut is managed by the managing director of the artop-Gesellschaft. This is always an active professor at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, so far Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Scholl and Prof. Dr. Hartmut Wandke. Since September 2014 Prof. Dr. Matthias Ziegler has been running the An-Institut.
Artop has a four-member co-ordination council, headed by the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences II, and the Faculty of Life Sciences (currently Prof. Dr. Richard Lucius), who is director of the Institute of Psychology (currently, Prof. Dr. Denis Gerstorf) as well as Thomas Heße and Prof. Dr. Karin Lackner. The Coordinating Council is supplemented by five other scientists and professionally active practitioners who, together with the Coordinating Council, form an extended advisory board, which supports the An-Institut artop in an advisory capacity.
The core of the cooperation between the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and artop are joint projects in application-oriented research.
