The International PhD Network was established as a joint project of the Bauhaus Research School and the International Office in order to support the integration of the international and German doctoral candidates both with the university structures and the social life in Weimar.
The International Bauhaus Network of Generations is a worldwide, interdisciplinary, lifelong network of all the current and former members, partners and supporters of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. An integral part of this network is the continually expanding group of alumni, now totalling 4,300 and spanning more than 70 countries around the world.
The Weimar International Network (WIN) is a project, organised in cooperation with the International Office of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, the Studentenwerk Thüringen and the Bauhaus Internationals, who are a branch of the StuKo. This comprehensive Internet platform allows us to inform and bring together interculturally-minded students and citizens in Germany and abroad.
The Ph.D. councils of the universities in Dresden, Freiberg, Jena, Leipzig and Weimar have joined their forces to form the VMPV and are committed to the interests of doctoral candidates in "Mitteldeutschland".
In addition, there are other possibilities to build networks and to inform yourself:
KISSWIN (Information and Consulting for Academic Careers) offers newsgroups and a community platform for young researchers since 2008.
ResearchGate is a social networking site for scientists from all disciplines. It provides tools to facilitate scientific collaboration on a global scale - for the search for topics, colleagues, methods, articles and more.
The German Association of University Professors and Lecturers (Deutscher Hochschulverband, in short DHV) represents more than 25.000 members. It provides comprehensive information and services for university professors and up-and-coming academics in Germany.
