The RTG´s qualification program seeks to support doctoral researchers in producing excellent dissertations in a limited amount of time. In addition, it aims to provide the doctoral researchers with a range of qualifications that not only enhance the quality of their dissertations, but foster inter-disciplinary, international, and collaborative orientation, so as to also provide them with distinctive markers in a competitive job market within and beyond academia. Particularly, the qualification program will support doctoral research
- through a study program that allows for discussing individual research projects in a collaborative environment as well as enhancing individual skills;
- through a closely-knit local research environment that encourages doctoral researchers to elaborate on aspects of their research in single-authored and collaborative form, with a clear aim of publishing some results before the completion of the doctoral dissertation;
- through the encouragement of disciplinary excellence through inter-disciplinary exposure and reflection, among others by organizing collaborative workshops;
- through continuous and intensive exchange and engagement with international cooperation partners as well as international research visits and conference presentations by doctoral researchers.
