Students and researchers at an early stage of their career make up an important part of the scientific community. By exchanging their knowledge and innovative ideas across disciplines, they contribute to the development of new structures and connections between the various research fields. The HBP Education Programme has introduced HBP Student Representatives, who speak for the Project's student community in the HBP Education Programme Committee, as well as HBP Student Ambassadors, who represent the various Subprojects and serve as a mouthpiece between the student community and the Student Representatives.
Do you want to come in contact with other students all over HBP and beyond? A Slack channel has been created for the HBP Student Community to exchange and connect to each other.
The HBP High Potential Programme supports equal opportunities and career development for leadership positions as well as among PhD students and post docs.
New to HBP? Our Student Ambassadors & Representatives have prepared a WELCOME PACKAGE for you, which includes the most important information to get you started.
If you are interested in possibilities to receive financial support for the attendance of events, you can find some further information in our funding opportunities overview .
