Welcome to Heine Research Academies

Heine Research Academies are a joint academic institution formed by the graduate academies of the faculties (iGRAD, medRSD and philGRAD) and the Junior Scientist and International Researcher Center (JUNO). Heine Research Academies are supporting your research work by a complementary program of transferable skills and workshops. We want to advance your career and training as an early career researcher. The graduate academies are open to doctoral students, postdocs and junior research group leaders as well as to supervisors of graduate research work that do research at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf.
