More on our apprenticeships

Being trained at the IHP means receiving specialized support from day one and having the unique opportunity to become familiar with various departments of a research institute. In day-to-day business and by carrying out projects, you will learn the essentials for your future career.

"Apprentice meets Science"


Our apprentices gain a fascinating insight into IHP research projects due to their annual self-organized workshop "Apprentices Meets Science".

"Apprentices in the Leibniz Association"

Apprentices of IHP, who are right now in their 2nd year, took part in the "Leibniz-Ausbildungstag" in the house of the Leibniz Association in Berlin, in June 2016. Besides an interesting social program, they had the chance to get to know apprentices from other Leibniz institutes as well as to experience the wide field of sciences in the Leibniz association.

"Apprentices abroad"

IHP supports the project "Apprentices Mobile" of the IHK Ostbrandenburg. So far, there have been three apprentices of IHP who shifted their studies and work - for one month each - to the UK or Malta. Internships in Poland and France have been also carried out thanks to the support of bbw - Educational Institute of Economics in Berlin and Brandenburg.


Pupils of the Carl-Friedrich-Gauss-Gymnasium and apprentices of IHP devote themselves to questions regarding the "Hydrogen Use for Public and Individual Transport in Frankfurt (Oder)". This HydroChange-Project has been co funded by the “Robert Bosch Foundation” within the program "Our Common Future" and supported by the city public transport company Frankfurt (Oder).
