VISESS offers a unique combination of the three branches which no other school has thus far brought together in one doctoral school. Connecting Earth, Cosmos and Anthroposphere opens up to a new way of ‘seeing the big picture’. Bringing together natural with social science is already indispensable today and will be even more essential in the future. Mastering humanity's big challenges like climate change is only possible through a synergy of these fields. Every branch is going to benefit from exchange of ideas among the students which will be strongly supported by VISESS.


VISESS will be a doctoral school that will set the course not only for a clear path to your successful PhD degree, but also for a prosperous career in international research and industry!
