About the PhDnet

Workgroups

Each year at the General Meeting workgroups are formed, which are the main acting organs of the PhDnet. They coordinate specific task within the PhDnet, organize events or collect and distribute information to the PhD candidates.

The main task of our group is to collect and disseminate important information to all PhD candidates in the Max Planck Society. In addition, the secretary group helps all Max Planck Institutes with the elections of their External Representative.
