Social Networking Events

Do you want to learn about cultural and historical sites in the Rhine-Main area and connect to other PhD candidates and postdocs at the same time?

The universities of the Rhine Main University Alliance (TU Darmstadt, Goethe University Frankfurt, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz) invite you to participate in the series of Social Networking Events that open up opportunities to meet (international) PhD candidates and postdoc from all faculties of the RMU universities.

Visits include a variety of cultural and historical sites in the Rhine-Main area and you can learn more about German culture, history and regional habits during these tours. After the events hosted by GRADE, it is our pleasure to invite all participants to come along to a café for a free drink. In an informal and relaxed atmosphere we encourage everybody to exchange views and opinions, to establish new contacts and to forge new friendships.

The Social Networking Events intend to provide an opportunity for interdisciplinary exchange. We usually speak English and only switch to German if all participants possess sufficient German language skills.

Please check the upcoming events for further details.


Please note that for each of the RMU universities, a certain number of places is reserved, within that group registration of participants is based on the "first come, first served"-principle and for every Social Networking Event there will be a time slot for signing up. As soon as registration starts for a certain event, we will send out an email with detailed information (including information about registration) to all PhD candidates and postdocs registered with GRADE.

Registration at GRADE as well as for the Social Networking Event is mandatory.
