E-Learning for researchers

Regular networking events for researchers

The informative lunch break - once a month, Wednesdays at lunchtime, with information about the scientific career under the motto: Bring your lunch and educate yourself!
Feel free to suggest your own topics.

The jungle_net is the exchange platform for junior professors and junior research group leaders at the HHU, who can independently lead a junior research group, have budget responsibility and supervise and review doctoral students, but do not yet have a permanent position. Every two months there is a joint lunch break with an informal exchange across disciplinary boundaries.


At HHU, postdocs work in a variety of different fields at five faculties. JUNO offers social events to bring postdocs together and to network.

Our JUNO Office offers you the chance to socialize in a relaxed atmosphere and to get-to-know other national and international researchers from HHU. We organize a JUNO regulars' table that is held in English. During each regulars' table, we will discuss different cultures, languages ​​and our own international experiences. You also have the opportunity to talk about other interests and learn new things from each other.
