We promote young scientists.

The GI is a central coordination unit for doctoral students. Therefore, our members are not only professors who supervise current doctoral projects, but first and foremost the doctoral students themselves. We offer professional and interdisciplinary qualification, networking, financial support and advice. In addition, the Graduate Institute sees itself as a link to the Doctoral College NRW , the network for young academics at universities of applied sciences (HAW) in North Rhine-Westphalia.
