A number of employees are active at the ITM. Some of the employees working at the chair itself, and deal mainly with the planning of courses. Others work in externally funded projects. The staff are supported by student assistants who are introduced to the work of the institute and can even work here as young researchers. The ITM is proud of its former employees who now work in various areas, like industry, politics and advocacy. The Institute is also working with a number of external lecturers, without whom the many teaching tasks of the ITM could not be accomplished.
