HHU StartHeine Research Academies (HeRA)Graduate Research Programmes

Structured graduate research programmes

Heinrich Heine University (HHU) has five faculties which are very strong in research and provide doctoral researchers with an excellent research environment. International and interdisciplinary Research Training Groups (RTGs) and integrated research training groups of Collaborative Research Centres (CRCs) facilitate an successful start to an academic career.
All these coordinated research entities, which adress doctoral and/or postdoctoral researchers at HHU, can become institutional members of Heine Research Academies via a membership in the corresponding faculties' own graduate academies.

Service for member programs

For its member programs, Heine Research Academies provide central organization of training related to career relevant competences, with detailed consideration of the requirements of the specific program via the faculties' own graduate academies. In addition, the graduate academies can also counsel and provide support e.g. for questions about quality standards, announcement and selection procedures. Structured doctoral degree programs can also receive assistance from the faculties' own graduate academies related to applying for support, developing qualification programs, and conceptualizing specific workshops.
