The podcast series "Abenteuer Promotion" has been produced by the Graduate Institute on the occasion of its tenth anniversary. The interviewees are all at different stages on the way to their goal: the doctorate.
They talk about expectations and difficulties or about the importance of networks and the trigger to start the adventure. They give tips about what they each consider important: For all those who are still in the planning stages of a doctorate, or who have also already embarked on the journey and are facing their first challenges.
RISE stands for Research Internships in Science and Engineering. The H-BRS has been successfully recruiting scholarships from the DAAD's RISE Germany programme since 2011. RISE Germany arranges research internships for North American, British and Irish Bachelor students at universities and non-university research institutions in Germany. The programme is funded by the Federal Foreign Office and through cooperations.
What are our doctoral researchers actually working on?
Since 2019, large-format banners initially on our bicycle racks and on our homepage with catchy slogans have provided more visibility for our doctoral projects. In 2021, smaller versions were added on the pedestrian bridge to huma. In 2022, we digitised our banners and they regularly run across the large LED display at the main entrance in Sankt Augustin.
