About the GGS
The Giessen Graduate Centre for Social and Economic Sciences and Law (Giessener Graduiertenzentrum Sozial-, Wirtschafts- und Rechtswissenschaften – GGS), which opened its doors on June 18, 2012, addresses doctoral students and postdocs of JLU faculties 01, 02 and 03, as well as doctoral students and postdocs of related faculties whose focus of research matches that of the GGS.
It is the aim of the GGS to create a research-intensive environment, training and further education programmes which are geared to the target group, and the chance to already establish a national and international network during the early phase of scientific qualification, hence offering the best possible framework conditions to the up-and-coming junior scientists of the GGS.
