International Promovieren in Bonn - for all (IPID4all)
Since December 2014, the internationalization of the Bonn International Graduate Schools (BIGS) has been reinforced by the project “International promovieren in Deutschland – für alle” (IPID4all). The program is funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst, DAAD). Its measures are designed for all doctoral researchers at the University of Bonn, but particularly the BIGS doctoral candidates.

The BIGS internationalization strategy is based on the conviction that internationalization will further improve academic quality assurance, as well as the qualifications of doctoral researchers. At the same time, the strategy recognizes a recent trend towards differentiation of subject-specific doctoral cultures and individual motivations for earning a doctorate.
Therefore the BIGS internationalization strategy pursues two complementary approaches:
Shared internationalization goals
The internationalization strategy for the participating graduate schools pursues three shared goals:
- Qualifying young academics from Bonn for international careers by building international networks: In order to achieve this goal, IPID4all supports research stays and conference participation for doctoral researchers, strengthens international networks in Bonn and promotes bi-national doctorates.
- Increasing the international attractiveness of the University of Bonn by creating ideal conditions for international doctoral researchers: This goal is pursued through measures that improve the recruitment of outstanding international doctoral researchers, as well as through workshops and seminar offerings that are specifically tailored to the needs of international doctoral researchers.
- Expanding international collaborations with outstanding international cooperation partners: To successfully achieve this goal, joint academic activities with international partners will be increased and the internationalization strategy will continuously be evaluated.
We have set up a Coordination Office at the Bonn Graduate Center to coordinate these measures.
