PhD students of the IMPRS-CBSC can participate in courses offered through the Professional Development Programm of the Dahlem Research School.
In addition, some courses are offered at the MPIMG.
Every few months, IMPRS Colloquia are held, at which two PhD students present their doctoral work. A third presentation is given by a faculty member of an invited guest.
Every year, the IMPRS-CBSC goes on a two-day retreat.
