You can also take part in an International Summer School organised by our strategic partners

Vascular Cell Functions in Health and Diseases is an International Summer School (ISS) for 25 outstanding doctoral students from selected universities in Europe and Latin America. It will take place October 7-19, 2018 at the Heidelberg Center for Latin America, Santiago, Chile.

It is run by Heidelberg University (Germany) in a joint effort with researchers from the Tecnológico de Monterrey (Mexico) and Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (Chile).


The objectives of this project are to strengthen academic collaboration between Asia, Europe and Latin America and to foster networks of young researchers from these regions. All costs (attendance fee, travel and accommodation) for doctoral students who have been awarded a scholarship will be covered by this program.


See the application form here.


Doctoral supervisors can nominate their students for the summer school scholarship; however, self-nominations are also invited. For more information, see this document.


The International Postgraduate Workshop 2018 (IPW 2018) will also take place at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile within the ISS between October 17-18, with the main topic: Human Pregnancy Complications in Diabesity.  We are proud to make the first call to participate as a presenter! . IPW 2018 will include keynote lectures, oral and poster presentations and is open to applications from undergraduates, MSc, PhD, postdoctorals and researchers. Please send Prof. Dr. Jens Kroll a letter of intent to attend and present your results at the IPW 2018 in conjunction with the ISS.
