The Dresden Leibniz Graduate School (DLGS) is a joint interdisciplinary facility of the Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development (IOER), and the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD). It hosts international doctoral candidates and invites applications from all disciplines selected in a competitive process, with an opportunity to be supported by a full-time scholarship for a period of three years.

The DLGS was established in 2008 to address the spatial implications of grand societal challenges. The graduate school is supported by the Leibniz Association, and operated by the IOER and the TUD. It is independent in designing its scientific program, committed to scientific excellence, and subject to regular international peer review.
