One of the most important characteristics of the GFZ is that it is so international. It is unthinkable not to have the exchanges and collaboration that we have with international scientists in our work.
To support its international employees during their stay, the GFZ works closely with the Welcome Center Potsdam. Even before they arrive, the Welcome Center can support future international employees in many ways.
Employees can also take advantage of help from the Welcome Center on-site on "Telegrafenberg" hill once a week.
When there is demand for it, the GFZ additionally offers a German language course for its international employees.
