Attracting young people to science and technology starts early; maintaining their interest continues for years. Helping them to gain qualifications for science and especially industry is the key aim of the PhoenixD early career support concept. ‘People matter’ – the Cluster supports all age cohorts, starting with elementary school and ending with well-trained scientists entering into high-level positions in industry, or young spin-off companies gaining their independence. The PhoenixD Research School PRS institutionalizes all teaching and career development activities as an integral part of the Cluster.

Support for young researchers - right from the start

One of the primary goals of PhoenixD and the PRS is to lead professionals from school to a successful career in industry and academia or in start-up companies in the field of optical technologies. On their way there, they receive excellent training, international and industrial experience and a high level of competence.

We offer an ideal environment for them to receive excellent technical training and develop the personal skills they need for their future careers. In addition, there are many opportunities for scientific exchange and professional cooperation between the individual disciplines at PhoenixD.
