Lecture series and seminars
To complement their training, the students attend scientific meetings of the Helmholtz programs Natural, Artificial and Cognitive Information Processing and Materials Systems Engineering where they present research reports on their projects. This allows the students to train their presentation skills and also provides an important platform for interdisciplinary exchange.
Each year the students themselves plan and organize the annual summer school for the entire BioInterfaces research school. The core of the retreat are poster and oral presentations about the individual PhD projects. In addition, they choose a topic and invite external speakers who give lectures in line with this topic. Financial and administrative support for realizing these activities is available from the administration of the Graduate School.
The summer school provides a unique opportunity to promote a scientific awareness that reaches beyond the individual‘s field of interest.
