Supervising and mentoring doctoral degrees and habilitations

Every doctoral research project requires scientific mentoring and every habilitation requires academic assistance, provided either by a single person or by a team of supervisors. If everyone takes an open, fair and transparent approach to working together, this provides a good basis for a successful doctoral project or habilitation. Consideration should also be given to social and cultural aspects, for example balancing family commitments and an academic career.

Is this the first time you are supervising a doctoral degree or a habilitation? Do you need further information about supervising a doctoral degree or habilitation? If that is the case, this section is for you.
