Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Dynamics

Institutional Network and Building

DYNAMICS is a joint PhD programme by the Department of Social Sciences at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the Hertie School which constitute an excellent research environment for the PhD programme. The intensive collaboration of these two institutions provides us with an unusual opportunity for building up of a critical research mass in our areas of specialization: Demography, democratic processes and public policy.

Cooperating Institutions

In addition to the cooperation between the Department of Social Sciences and the Hertie School which have already been cooperating for years in research and teaching, we have cross-cutting affiliations with the following institutions which will provide our doctoral researchers with valuable additional research opportunities. Being located in Berlin furthermore allows for important linkages to the policy-making community.

Building

DYNAMICS will be accommodated on the northern campus of Humboldt University (Luisenstraße 56). This building is located in the heart of Berlin in close proximity to both, the Department of Social Sciences at the HU and the Hertie School in order to foster internal exchange among DYNAMICS PhD scholars and to allow for easy personal communication with the faculty members at both participating institutions. The building is equipped with a lecture hall and several seminar rooms as well as a cafeteria, a common room and one family room. All PhD students will be supplied with office space and first-class IT systems and software.
