About the event:
The German doctorate enjoys an outstanding reputation. Germany’s research institutions, universities and companies welcome international researchers and offer excellent opportunities for doctoral students. Structured PhD programmes, for example, often have a strong international orientation with English as the team language.

Roughly 29,000 graduate students complete a doctorate in Germany every year – far more than in any other member state of the European Union. Every year, over 5,500 international scholars are awarded a doctoral degree by a German university.

Dr. Johannes Freudenreich, Helmholtz Association, Promotion of young and early-stage researchers
The Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers was created in 1995 to formalise existing relationships between several globally-renowned independent research centres. The Helmholtz Association distributes core funding from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) to its 18 autonomous research centers and evaluates their effectiveness against the highest international standards.

Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres contributes to solving the major challenges facing society, science and the economy by conducting top-level research in strategic programmes within our six research fields: Energy, Earth & Environment, Health, Aeronautics, Space and Transport, Matter, and Information.

Helmholtz Graduate Schools
Each Helmholtz Center has a graduate school, graduate office, or contact person responsible for doctoral researchers. This central contact point provides advice in administrative matters relating to their doctorate and acts as a link between the Helmholtz Center and the partner universities in matters concerning their doctorate. The Helmholtz Graduate Offices and Schools combine various opportunities available to doctoral candidates at a Helmholtz Center. This may also include several Research Schools and International Research Schools.
