The Graduate School's International Networking

Scientific excellence not only depends on the outstanding performance of talented young researchers but also on the close cooperation with a worldwide network of renowned partner institutions. Consequently, the Graduate School is making strong efforts to develop a doctoral training programme within an international context. A central element of our internationalization strategy is the Spring and Fall Meetings attended by speakers of international renown. A second important element is the promotion of international cooperation in the form of exchange programmes and international PhD programmes.
