Guidelines for the completion of PhD projects within the Helmholtz Association

The Initiative and Networking Fund has funded Helmholtz Graduate Schools and Helmholtz Research Schools since 2006 with the aim of providing a qualitative and quantitative addition to the existing range of choices available in Germany. These schools offer doctoral students a well-structured framework with professional guidance and supervision by senior researchers and a custom-tailored curriculum that enables them to acquire key professional qualifications and complementary skills.

Structured doctoral training in the Helmholtz Association is based on uniform standards and guidelines agreed upon by all centres.
