News: We are part of the Federal Association of Doctoral Candidates

On September 26, a meeting of doctoral student representatives from all over Germany took place in Berlin to found the Bundesverband Promovierende e.V. (Federal Association of Doctoral Candidates).

The aim of the Bundesverband Promovierende is to fight for better working conditions for researchers in Germany. It emerged from a loose network of more than 50 doctoral candidate representatives, in which around 60% of Germany's doctoral candidates had joined forces to take a stand against the reform process of the Act on Fixed-Term Employment Contracts in Academia (WissZeitVG).
