International cooperation and career opportunities
Leibniz institutions are part of a global network, and Researchers working at Leibniz Institutes collaborate with academic partners worldwide. Leibniz Institutes, Leibniz Research Alliances and Leibniz ScienceCampi select their international collaboration partners independently. The Leibniz Association is also actively engaged in attracting the best scientists worldwide to conduct research at, and collaborate with, Leibniz Institutes. In 2020, international scientists accounted for 26 per cent of academic staff, 36 per cent of doctoral students and 37 per cent of post-doctoral researchers.
