Training Courses

GRANAT Advanced Training Courses

The advanced training courses offered by the GRANAT graduate school are intended to support junior researchers in the natural sciences. They are especially tailored towards the doctoral students and postdocs at the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Hannover Medical School.

The courses give particular consideration to the specialist backgrounds and professional requirements of this group and impart transferable skills and additional professional and research-related competences as required by natural scientists. Doctoral students and junior scientists can thus supplement their actual research work with certified, structured advanced training courses which focus on customised, additional skills and enable them to explore future professional fields and entrepreneurship, too. GRANAT thus supplements the interdisciplinary advanced training programme offered by the Graduate Academy of Leibniz University Hannover.
