GDCh-NESACS study trip

The GDCh-NESACS study tour is an exchange program between the GDCh and the Northeastern Section of the American Chemical Society (NESACS), which was launched in 2000 to promote exchanges among young people from the two chemical societies. The program is largely shaped by the JungChemikerForum (JCF) and the Northeastern Section Younger Chemist Committee (NSYCC).

Chemistry students and doctoral candidates from all over Germany have the opportunity to present their scientific work as a poster or lecture at a Conference in the USA, to take part in excursions and to make contacts. The visit of the American guests is linked to the spring symposium of the young chemists.

RISE stands for Research Internship in Science and Engineering and is offered by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). The RISE and RISE professional programs provide internships from universities and industry in Germany to students and graduates from North America. Doctoral students can apply for the employment of a foreign research assistant in these programs.

Via RISE worldwide, ambitious German students from the natural, geo and engineering sciences can use the opportunity to work with researchers all over the world.

The GDCh supports the study reform and the introduction of tiered courses in chemistry. With the help of representatives from universities and other scientific organizations, it published statements accompanying the Bologna Process. The GDCh would like to continue to support the goal of the Bologna Process, to create a common European higher education area, in a constructive manner, and will work to keep the quality of the degrees at all universities at the highest level. Furthermore, the doctoral phase as part of the training of natural scientists is in the focus of the GDCh.

Postgraduate studies in ecotoxicology

In response to the called for by students, authorities and industry deficit in the education of ecotoxicology the two societies GDCh have division for Environmental Chemistry and Ecotoxicology and the SETAC-GLB (Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry Europe, German-language Branch eV) together the PostGradualStudium (PGS) Specialized Ecotoxicology with degree "Specialized Ecotoxicologist (GDCh / SETAC-GLB)" realized. more information is available here
