The Helmholtz Juniors consist of two elected representatives of each Helmholtz Centre. We currently represent the interests of about 6800 doctoral students and meet twice a year. Our primary goals are fostering exchange and networking among their peers, improving their working conditions and expanding the range of advanced training opportunities available to them within the Helmholtz Association.
Two years ago, we had the idea to not only meet with the group of elected PhD representatives but organize a PhD conference open to everybody who would like to get more out of the Helmholtz Network. Today, we are glad to announce that motivated PhD students from various Helmholtz Centres have organized this conference!
