Laboratory Insurance

For many laboratory internships, project, bachelor or master theses a laboratory insurance must be taken out. First of all, ask your parents whether your personal liability insurance already includes such an insurance. For this purpose, a confirmation from the insurance company is required.

If this is not the case, you have to take out a separate insurance policy. You can find useful information on or ask our contact person Mr. Andreas Lorenz (06108 - 69999) about a suitable insurance.
