Summer School

Organised by the PhD students themselves, the summer school is the annual highlight among the JRA activities, offering young scientists of the cluster of excellence a platform for networking and interdisciplinary cooperation. By enlisting internationally renowned scientists for keynote presentations, input from beyond the cluster is provided together with the opportunity for establishing career-promoting contacts. This is complemented by reports from the different research fields of H4A given by experienced scientists, whereas young scientists present their projects in short highlight talks and posters alike. The programme also includes training of general skills helpful for PhD project and career, as well as team building activity and plenty of time for socialising.
