The IHRS NanoNet was funded by the Initiative and Networking Fund of the Helmholtz Association (VH-KO-606) until Dec 2020.

Tutoring and lab rotations


The training program of the IHRS NanoNet includes hands-on lab courses held by doctoral candidates to doctoral candidates. The hands-on lab courses are informal mutual visits of the PhD candidates to each other host laboratories. They are intended to enhance collaboration between the candidates working on closely related tasks, sharing equipement, or using similar methodologies to tackle different challenges.

The lab courses should be held in semesters three to five. Each doctoral candidate is expected to participate at least once as tutor as well as trainee during the course of the PhD program.

Lab rotations

To broaden perspectives, lab rotations will be organized to expose the doctoral candidates to the environment and science done in different laboratories. The lab rotations will be organized on a case-to-case basis by each student in close coordination with the Thesis Advisory Committee (TAC). It will basically consist of short stays of the doctoral candidate in a partner laboratory to perform research within his/her own PhD project. The hosting laboratories are not restricted to NanoNet partners.
