Special Interdisciplinary Training

Special Interdisciplinary Training at the RUB Research School consists of two branches: Research Day and the Science College - each with specific goals.

  • Research Day

    The aim of Research Day is to present and to discuss state-of-the-art research carried out by doctoral researchers on campus. The day offers an impression of a vast number of research fields, where doctoral researchers can present and communicate their projects to a highly interdisciplinary community of researchers. The Research Day focuses on research within your field, while giving insight into projects from very different research areas. A highly relevant research topic is chosen each year anew, to be presented and discussed by invited experts and the doctoral participants.

    The program is designed to support innovative ways of interaction and communication in research and research-related topics. The event is staged by doctoral fellows, who design the programme, invite speakers and guide the contestants through the day.

  • Science College

    The opportunity to get in contact with the diversity of science at large, the intellectual exchange and communication across disciplinary boundaries, makes the RUB Research School unique. Science College is one of the most appropriate means to direct budding researchers' attention to overarching issues of science and society. The event covers recent transdisciplinary research topics and involves leading minds of relevant disciplines.

    To receive the Research School certificate, doctoral researchers have to participate in Science College once during the doctorate.
