Strengthening Competencies, Generating Opportunities

Graduate Center Plus (GC Plus) supports the faculties of the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) in optimally promoting early career researchers at all career levels. Advanced Master's students, doctoral researchers, and postdoctoral researchers benefit from:

  • interdisciplinary information, e.g. on doctoral studies at the UDE, career paths within and beyond academia, and criteria for good scientific practice
  • 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
  • networking within the University Alliance Ruhr (UA Ruhr) and beyond
