Doctoral Researchers

Recent PhD projects at IBG-2

The IBG-2 doctoral researchers come from all over the world and are organizing various group activities e.g. trips to other research institutions or universities or an inhouse PhD seminar to present and discuss new results, challenges etc. with the rest of the institute staff.
