On behalf of the GGG we warmly welcome you to Göttingen. We are happy that you have chosen our university for your studies and further research, and we would like to wish you success in the coming months and years. In addition, we hope you will find the courage to consistently go to your limits and, thereby, expanding them in every way possible.
During your stay here, the GGG will attend to your general needs with the Helpdesk providing a particular support for international PhD students. Our various courses should not only be regarded as a compulsory part of your curriculum, but should also be seen as supportive of your academic work - in a truly interdisciplinary sense! One of the things on offer is the annual Methodological Week (Methodenwoche): Close cooperation between economic scientists, agricultural and forestry scientists as well as legal scholars and social scientists enables you to broaden your horizon and to place your own work into an interdisciplinary context.

Here is a list of websites that may help you getting used to your new surrounding:
