Promoting young researchers at the KU

The Center for Research Promotion is responsible for promoting young researchers through structured doctoral degree programs and research training groups, and coordinates all of the KU’s activities in this area as part of the Graduate Academy. Using an innovative approach, it aims to combine the following: a) teaching professional skills and providing personal development opportunities (employability) and b) ensuring young researchers have the required methodological skills for academic work (in collaboration with the Methods Service Center). These two elements are complemented by c) opportunities and formats for all disciplines in which, for example, current research discourses are drawn on, explained, and discussed, outstanding researchers from certain disciplines are invited to advanced seminars and reading courses, and annual or biannual lecture series are organized on specific topics (advanced studies).
