  • a voluntary, interdisciplinary workshop programme to strengthen one's own competencies
  • access to the offers of the Research Academy Ruhr
  • a target group-specific overview of national and international funding opportunities as well as of the support services offered by the faculties and institutions at the UDE
  • personal consulting and facilitation of contact persons
