MAINZ has established contacts to leading universities worldwide to guarantee PhD students ideal conditions, if they want to benefit from a secondment outside of their host institution. Our cooperating partners have agreed either to start or to strengthen collaboration and student/postdoctoral exchange programs in the interdisciplinary field of materials science.

Outside the academic field, MAINZ has assembled a network of local (e.g. Surface Concept, Singulus), national (e.g. Schott), and international industrial partners (e.g. IBM, BASF, Henkel, Roche, Boehringer Ingelheim), which support the graduate school in research and training.
