  • Networking between doctoral researchers from chemistry, electrical engineering, life science, materials science, physics
  • Finding cooperation partners for your own research topic
  • Developing support programmes according to personal needs
  • Establishing regular exchange formats you really like to attend
  • Providing practical experience for your academic careers
  • taking first steps in science management
