Data Science Schools

have been implementing their attractive programmes in close cooperation with partner universities since September 2018

Exchange Programs

HIDA plans to establish exchange programs for data science talent with various universities and research institutions internationally. As a pilot project, an exchange program with Ben Gurion University in Beer Sheva, Israel, will be launched for the first time in summer 2020. This program offers the Helmholtz Centers the opportunity to host data scientists from Ben Gurion University for six weeks, introducing them to exciting data science projects in the association’s six domains. In this way, hosts get to know data science talents from Israel's Cyber Cypital and find exciting answers to their questions. Conversely, also in summer 2020, data scientists from the Helmholtz Centers will have the opportunity to visit Ben Gurion University for a research project as well.

  • Are you a doctoral researcher or postdoc at a Helmholtz Center and work with data science methods?
  • Are you interested in learning what your colleagues at another of the association’s centers are working on?
  • Do you want to publish in different fields, enlarge your job profile and broaden your horizon?


The HIDA Trainee Network was established at the initiative of the Helmholtz Centers and is is a novel exchange program for doctoral and postdoctoral researchers who work at a Helmholtz Center and whose research work has a strong connection to information or data sciences. It enables one to three month research stays at another Helmholtz Center or partner institution financially supported by HIDA.
