Eva Zipperle-Mirwald


As administrative support for the managing team, my task is to organize and support networking within the University. Organizing events, seminars and workshops is part of my job, as well as maintaining the homepage, managing the budget and co-maintaining  the Working Paper series of the Faculty of Economics and Statistics.

In addition, as coordinator I am also allowed to provide administrative support for the two doctoral colleges #OrganizingtheDigital and Politics - Power - Laguage, as well as organizing the DK-X-Change in Obergurgl in close cooperation with the Transferstelle - Wissenschaft - Wirtschaft - Gesellschaft and the Writing Center of UBL Tirol.

Through my PhD in Work and Organizational Psychology, I first got in contact the then research platform Organizations & Society, which led to a long-term position as coordinator first at the platform and later at the research area EPoS.
