Partners and Networks
IPP members benefit from our programme’s well-established international networks with top-level research institutions around the world. The IPP participates in several multi-lateral networks (ESSCS, Hermes and PhDnet) and numerous bilateral collaborations. These networks promote lively exchange between doctoral researchers and junior as well as senior researchers world-wide, thus integrating IPP-members into the international academic community. The IPP cooperates closely with the GCSC in the systematic development and expansion of international collaborations with top-ranking universities. A current overview of our international networks can be found here.
The internationalisation of postgraduate studies is one of the IPP´s key policies and opens up a manifold of opportunities to our members.
We offer our doctoral researchers
- an international curriculum (e.g. master classes taught by leading international scholars, international summer schools and conferences)
- organisational help and funding of conference and research trips
- active help in gaining international conference and publication experience
- a lively forum for exchange and networking with peers and senior scholars around the world.
Moreover, we encourage international co-supervision of PhD-projects (“Cotutelle”).
The IPP is a member of four multilateral cooperations: ESSCS, Hermes and the European PhDnet “Literary and Cultural Studies”
The IPP is strongly committed to promoting the internationalisation of postgraduate education and maintains numerous bilateral partnerships.
The IPP is affiliated with the Faculty for Language, Literature and Culture at Justus Liebig University Giessen and collaborates with various national and international research institutions. A current overview of affiliated departments and institutions in Gießen and beyond can be found here.
Cotutelle agreements lead to binational degrees awarded by the Justus Liebig University Giessen and an international partner institution. The universities share supervision and examination responsibilities; they further recognize course requirements and examinations completed at the partner institutions. The IPP supports its members in obtaining their degrees within a Cotutelle framework.
