"In science, there is never an achievement of the goal. In science, there are always only milestones." (Henning M. Beier, * 1940, biologist and physician) We, the team of the Graduate Institute, support the H-BRS doctoral students in reaching their next milestone.

The Graduate Institute attaches great importance to intensive cooperation with the doctoral students of the university. For this reason, the General Assembly of Doctoral Students elects two representatives each year in a secret ballot as spokespersons, one each for the Rheinbach Campus and the Sankt Augustin Campus. They form a link between the directorate of the institute and the doctoral students.
