Welcome to Graduate Center Plus

Graduate Center Plus (GC Plus) supports the faculties of the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) with promoting early career researchers. We pool the different expertise and offerings of the faculties, central facilities and structured programs.

In addition to counselling, information and support, GC Plus offers different events for transferable skills training as well as internal and external funding opportunities. It not only addresses the UDE's early career researchers, but also provides support for the UDE's professors who supervise the next generation of researchers or want to develop new programs – e. g. DFG Research Training Groups.

On our website, we inform about our activities and offers as well as current announcements and events. Besides, we provide useful information for early career researchers. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or need further advice.
