International Training

International Mobility Program

The International Mobility Program provides graduate students of the International Helmholtz Research School for Diabetes with an international and collaborative research experience. Graduate students from both institutions, the Helmholtz Diabetes Center and the Alberta Diabetes Institute, respectively, spend 6 months at the partner institution, where they proceed their graduate studies as part of their research projects. The long-term exchange enables extensive technology exchange and transfer of know-how between the partner institutions and a joint approach to solving major questions in diabetes research. Graduate students are integrated into training program of the partner institution and profit from an enriched training program. Back in their home lab, students will present their results from their research stay. The International Mobility Program is mandatory to graduate students of the International Helmholtz Research School for Diabetes.


Joint Symposium

An annual joint symposium will strengthen networking between group leaders and graduate students from both institutions and thus the development of collaborative and interdisciplinary projects. The joint symposium will alternate between the Helmholtz Diabetes Center and the Alberta Diabetes Institute, respectively, and will add substantial value to the international approach to solving major challenges in diabetes research.

Conferences

At conferences graduate students learn about the current and interdisciplinary development of their research sector and present their project results to experts in the field. Moreover, they have great networking options - to establish collaborations and career ideas.

International Conference Visit

All graduate students are expected to present their graduate work at least once at an international conference. For this, travel grants are offered by HELENA.

Helmholtz Diabetes Conference

The annual Helmholtz Diabetes Conference brings together international top leaders in diabetes research and takes place at the Helmholtz Diabetes Center. Graduate students of the International Helmholtz Research School for Diabetes can apply for scholarships.
