 VDS CoBeNe Education

The VDS CoBeNe educational program is designed to:

  • reflect the range of its fields
  • allow in-depth training in the specific research field, and
  • to experience training in transferable skills and scientific exchange

Furthermore, it is designed to allow a high degree of flexibility in terms of what to get the credits for (e.g., specific training in concepts/methods, transferable skills, or presenting at national and international conferences, but in any case adhering to the individual curricula and required ECTS.
