Who can participate?


Graduate Academy SERIOR is aimed primarily at young scientists whose PhD- or Postdoc-research concerns risk and security management.

If you are associated with one of Graduate Academy SERIOR’s six partner universities in the Upper Rhine region you can apply for participation in the training programme, for example for the next Summer School (18-22 June 2018 in Goersforf/France). The Graduate Academy SERIOR reserves a limited number of places for applicants from the institutions involved in the organization, the remaining places are open to all PhD-candidates, including international applicants.

The annual lecture series of Graduate Academy SERIOR is open also to interested MA- and BA-students.


The programme for knowledge exchange allows stakeholders from enterprises, politics, local administrations or NGOs to participate in Graduate Academy SERIOR.  Events for transdisciplinary knowledge exchange will be held at each of the six partner universities of Graduate Academy SERIOR once per year in 2017 and 2018.
