Why participate in Citavi Champions? You never know when software and teaching skills might come in handy in the future. Years ago, as a library intern, I taught classes on reference management, and that experience eventually led me to Citavi!

Champion Benefits

Beyond the feel-good factor, there’s lots in it for you as well:

  • Pro features: Host an event or complete a project, tell us about it, and we’ll send you a personal, non-expiring license key for Citavi 6. If you teach a course, your participants can receive a code for a free trial license key.
  • Training: Learn how to use Citavi better and earn a certificate to verify your skills. Members can also take advantage of exclusive monthly online training webinars and demos of new features, which can help improve your own research workflows.
  • Stuff: Get a goodie bag with items you’ll actually use. Need materials for a course? Let us know in advance and we’ll send you posters and flyers.
  • Access: As a champion, you have direct contact with a Citavi team member and can share your feedback and ideas. We’ll also give you a heads up about new features and releases before they are publicly announced.
  • Experience: Gain teaching, public speaking, and/or design experience that you can add to your CV. If you want help, just ask! We’ll give you pointers to ensure that your project is a success.

How can I apply?
