Promotion of young scientists Targeted information - individual advice. We support young scientists. Our focus in supporting the new generation of academics is on career and research-funding opportunities. Closely connected with this are questions of research strategies, vocational guidance and career planning. If opted for an academic career, we support young researchers in developing subject-related and transferable skills. This includes, for example, our Summer School (GSERM), that offers methodology courses in empirical research. Our Young Investigator Programme helps young researchers orientate in academia, build interdisciplinary competencies and build a network.
