Welcome to our 7 new fellows

MICMoR aims at training young scientists for careers in the climate change field. Today much more is asked from the next generation of researchers: academic research skills in just one scientific field is often not enough, but an interdisciplinary approach is required to be able to cross boundaries and seek new innovative ideas. In addition, an international global orientation as well as networking and exchange with cooperation partners is crucial for scientific careers ...

What we offer ...

Welcome to MICMoR,

the Helmholtz Research School on Mechanisms and Interactions of Climate Change in Mountain Regions, based at KIT/IMK-IFU in Garmisch-Partenkirchen!

MICMoR’s research is directed to the consequences of climate change for biosphere, atmosphere and pedo-/hydrosphere processes. Its Graduate Program offers scientific training for PhD students from a background in climate change research. It also provides training in professional competencies and offers various opportunities of international exchange and collaboration. Our vision is to train a new generation of outstanding young scientists to navigate successfully in collaborative climate change research.

At the beginnung of 2016 we can look back to the past four MICMoR years and be very happy with how our Research School has developed. We thank especially all our 30 MICMoR Fellows and the MICMoR Scientists for their commitment and engagement in MICMoR activities.
