Support for attendance of conferences

Presentation of the research results in workshops and conferences is a fundamental requirement in the formation of a scientist. Students of the IRTG are requested to attend at least two events per year (workshops, conferences, or schools), where they present their research work as a poster or an oral presentation. (Only first year PhD students may travel without presenting own work). The CRC-TR may provide financial support for the travel expenses, available upon application to the CRC-TR office. The choice of the conference/workshop is made by the students with the support of the thesis supervisor. This activity is meant to foster the students’ independence and project planning skills and gives them the opportunity to interact with other scientists and expand their scientific network. On the other hand, it represents one of the most effective means to give visibility to the work of the CRC-TR and its members.
