Together with five partner universities, Forschungszentrum Jülich will receive € 2.4 million in funding to establish Helmholtz Interdisciplinary Doctoral Training in Energy and Climate (HITEC).
Scientists from JARA-ENERGY and four other academic partners intend to create ideal conditions for graduate training in the field of energy supply and its impact on climate change.
The objective of the HITEC graduate school “Helmholtz Interdisciplinary Doctoral Training in Energy and Climate”, which will run for six years, is to provide interdisciplinary training for more than 200 graduates making them experts in issues of energy and climate. “The training programme gives graduates the opportunity to broaden their subject-specific and methodological knowledge, to position their own research in the international context, to approach their topics in an interdisciplinary way and to network with scientists from other disciplines in the field of energy and climate research,” says Prof. Uwe Rau, the spokesperson of HITEC and director of JARA-ENERGY. The graduates will also participate in a course on management and communication to make them fit for the job market and to provide them with the necessary know-how to build successful careers.
