DBG · Promoting young researchers

RISE

For ten years the society sponsored undergraduate students to conduct research at a German institute or university. With this the DBG continued to promote the RISE Program (Research Internship in Science and Engineering) of the DAAD organization (Deutsch Akademischer Austauschdienst) in the years from 2005 to 2015: Undergraduates from the USA, Canada or Great Britain visit German universities or scientific institutes and do research together with German graduates. Since 2009 the DAAD also sponsors the visit of young German researchers in Northern America. Both parties profit from this colaboration. Or how a participant puts it: "The internship furthered my career in three major ways."
