Lectures and Seminars


VISESS offers disciplinary education in the branches "Cosmos", "Earth" and "Anthroposphere" as well as inter- and trans-disciplinary training and research connecting the cosmos with planets & atmospheres including its environments and with the anthroposphere. We aim our students to become world-leading experts in either of these three branches while also confidently communicate and contribute across all three branches. 

PhD students meet peers for scientific exchange and networking at the PhD seminars and branch-specific topic seminars within each branch and the VISESS-wide interdisciplinary Big Picture Seminar series.
