The next generation of researchers

The institutions in the Leibniz Association systematically promote and train junior researchers. In addition to the support they receive at individual institutions, the Leibniz Association has also implemented overarching structures to promote junior researchers. Leibniz Graduate Schools are the centerpiece.
