Research Training Group (RTG)

The Research Training Group (RTG) provides a framework for the structured qualification of doctoral and post-doctoral researchers to prepare them to conduct interdisciplinary research. The RTG offers an extensive workshop program to help early career researchers develop their professional and personal skills and organizes events such as writing ashrams or conferences.

Early career researchers can also take advantage of the counseling services, short mentoring programs, and networking opportunities provided by the RTG.
