Geo.X is a strategic partnership with the aim of fostering the Berlin-Potsdam region as an international centre of geoscientific competence. An important element is the support of young scientists, e.g. by training courses or course lectures.
Once a year the GFZ together with the Alfred-Wegener-Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research AWI, the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies IASS, the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research PIK, and the University of Potsdam presents the Potsdam Summer School. This Summer School is a transdisziplinary and interactive event for early-career scientists and young professionals from the private sector.
