In order to create comparability and track progress, the Graduate School is structured through a module system.

Each Doctoral Researcher in our Graduate School independently selects their modules; at least five days of Scientific Modules, five days of Science Communication Modules, and five days of Management Modules.

In total, 15 days have to be completed. A mandatory e-learning course on Research Data Management has to be completed within the first six months of membership. 

The trainings within the Carl Zeiss Foundation Training Program and the Equal Opportunity Training Program are voluntary and addressed to all Doctoral and Postdoctoral Researchers of the Cluster.
