The Integrated research training group (RTG) is a designated training programme for doctoral students and postdocs in order for them to achieve an outstanding international qualification profile. In continuous cooperation with each other and with the Principal Investigators of various projects, the young scientists combine their compentences regarding data analysis and embedded systems, as well as expert knowledge on the different practical problems studied within the Collaborative Research Centre (CRC). This way the members of the RTG are enabled to increase their visibility in international research. In addition to attending conferences, they are introduced to actively designing workshops and the membership in programme committees.

In its essence, the concept of the RTG for the third funding period is a continuation of the concept, which proved its worth during the first and second funding periods of the CRC. The RTG is open to excellent young scientists, generally selected through international calls for proposals. Applicants are expected to (already) have strong focus on the research areas relevant to the CRC. In Dortmund students are able to acquire the relevant knowledge by attending selected lectures and, if applicable, by writing their master’s theses as members of the CRC. The training in the RTG is based on this previous knowledge, which is complemented in a structured form. This way students and postdocs acquire a combined knowlegde in data analysis and embedded systems.

The training in the RTG is based on a canon of colloquial lectures held by CRC members and tailored to the central questions of the CRC. This way, doctoral students are guided towards high international research standards in a quick, effective, and comprehensive manner. The highest priority is given to enabling the young scientists to conduct original and independent research.

The doctoral candidates therefore present their own work in Topical Seminars, attached to the individual research groups of the CRC (Data Analysis, Resource Restriction, and Information Gathering). These presentations generally include dedicated discussions with project leaders and invited high-level international researchers. Since the CRC intends to already recruit excellent students as doctoral candidates at an early stage of their academic training, students who decided to conduct their bachelor's or master's theses as part of a project within the CRC, are invited to participate in the lectures and Topical Seminars. A limited number of doctoral candidates will be given the opportunity to familiarise themselves with their doctoral subject in the presence of outgoing project staff by means of scholarships.

The training within the RTG is concluded by classes on Soft- and Technical Skills. Technical Skill classes mainly focus on the handling of relevant software tools. Soft Skill classes focus, for example, on enhancing the the students' communication skills. Furthermore, PhD students are given the opportunity to preferentially participate in training programmes available for the academic staff at TU Dortmund. All developed capabilities are brought together at the annual CRC workshops, where students are strongly encouraged to demonstrate their skills in oral and written form. The training of the young scientists is rounded of by a bi-annual summer school, to which outstanding international scientists are invited.
