Trips for apprentices

With our annual trips for apprentices to other centres of the Helmholtz Association, HZG gives the apprentices the chance to communicate across centres and to network and get to know each other. The trips for apprentices are for all apprentices and trainers and have been planned and organised by the apprentices themselves for several years now.

In the summer of 2019, for example, HZG apprentices visited the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research in Braunschweig.
