IP@Leibniz - Doctoral Studies in an International Context at Leibniz Universität Hannover

A Programme for Mobility, Networking and Advanced Training in an International Context

Who is the Target Group of the Programme?

  • International Master Students and Prospective Doctoral Candidates
  • International and German PhD´s

of the Following Main Research Areas:

  • Quantum Optics and Gravitational Physics
  • Production Technology
  • Biomedical Research and Technology


The Graduate Academy together with the International Office has raised research funds from the DAAD and the Federal Ministry of Education (BMBF) to promote further internationalization of doctoral education. With a total of 430,000 €, mobility and education measures for doctoral candidates will be promoted in the three research areas of quantum optics and gravitational physics, production technology as well as biomedical research and technology. For Leibniz Universität Hannover this means additional strengthening of the international profile and the attractiveness for doctoral candidates.

In the context of IP @ Leibniz mobility grants for "Incoming" and "Outgoing" doctoral candidates can be awarded. This includes the financing of traineeships and of short research stays at Leibniz Universität Hannover. These grants give potential international doctoral candidates and their supervisors the opportunity to get to know one another before a PhD agreement is concluded.

Furthermore, doctoral candidates of Leibniz Universität Hannover can be financially supported when undertaking a research period abroad. This will strengthen international networking and strategically aligned partnerships of the respective main research areas but also increase international experiences of the doctoral candidates.

In addition, further training will be provided for doctoral candidates of Leibniz Universität Hannover. These are aimed at strengthening the exchange between Incomings and Outgoings, at raising awareness for the international context and at improving the integration of international doctoral candidates. For this purpose target group-specific language courses in English and German as well as workshops on intercultural communication will be conducted.

Solenne Mazaleyrat of the International Office is responsible for coordination and implementation of IP@Leibniz.
