The Max Planck PhDnet
The PhDnet is one of Germany's largest networks of PhD students. Launched at the 1st meeting of PhD students of the Max Planck Society in Heidelberg (April 4-6 2003) the network is open to PhDs from all Max Planck Institutes. The aim is to be platform for exchange among doctoral students at Max-Planck-Institutes.
Regardless of their particular fields of research, all PhD students strive to maximize their achievements during the PhD period, to avail of and contribute to the scientific profile of their respective MPIs and to effectively plan their career. Proficient communication structures among students and between students and the MPG are essential for an exchange upon these common interests as well as for joining efforts in improving and ensuring the efficiency of the PhD period.
In order to foster the internal organisation and collaboration of the PhD students at all MPIs, the students have initiated a network which follows the same ideas that led to the establishment of the International Max Planck Research Schools.
