Welcome to HIGRADE!
The "Helmholtz Interdisciplinary GRADuate School for Environmental Research (HIGRADE)" is the graduate school for doctoral researchers at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research – UFZ, in cooperation with partner universities and partner programmes (see here).
HIGRADE aims to provide a coherent framework for qualifying a new generation of internationally competitive doctoral researchers in the field of environmental research. We intend to prepare the doctoral researchers for careers in a range of environmental fields, i.e. for taking over leading positions in research, management and policy, technology development, or consulting and education. Graduate education in HIGRADE is structured, systematic and adapted to individual needs.
