KEPOS continues

Kepos GmbH i.L has to be explained

 

 .

Changes are afoot at Kepos about which I would like to inform you today. The limited company Kepos GmbH was founded in 2008 as a staff agency with the purpose to offer additional temporary employment for scientists beyond the opportunities provided by the German Science and Research Act governing Fixed-Term Contracts WissZeitVG. Due to legal and actual changes in terms of a more constant personnel development policy for junior scientists, this instrument is no longer required.

In parallel, we have offered trainings, coachings and consulting services for junior scientists since 2009 and will continue to do so in future. For this part of the business, however, the necessity of the legal form of a GmbH is no longer given. For this reason, the Kepos GmbH was dissolved by 30th June 2017. All contracts that have already been closed with you will be fulfilled as agreed, though on invoices you will find the add-on i. L. to signalize to our partners that the Kepos GmbH is now in liquidation.

The GmbH is ending, but Kepos continues. From now on, we will operate a network in the old name under which, as hitherto, various trainers work with and for junior scientists. We will continue to offer you our expertise in the field of Life Sciences and promise consistent quality. Contracts will have the same standard as before, though they will be concluded in the name of the trainer carrying out the measure. You will also receive the invoice from the respective trainer. Our website will remain and you can catch up on new developments at www.kepos.com.

Since there is no longer the need for an office for our network, we will give up our location at Mannheim. All mail should hence be sent to the following address:

Kepos (GmbH i.L) ./. Barbara Hoffbauer, Siegfriedstrasse 104, 64646 Heppenheim

For your questions and requests please contact Irmtraud Williams by email at williams@kepos.com or phone on 0151 5085 5272. For the rest, all email addresses to date will be retained.

I look forward to working with you in the future and thank you for the trust you have placed in me personally and in my team.

Yours sincerely,

Barbara Hoffbauer
