Dresden Leibniz Graduate School (DLGS)

The Dresden Leibniz Graduate School (DLGS) is an international graduate school of spatial science, economics and social sciences in Germany. It pursues a European comparative perspective with focus on regional and local development strategies. The DLGS provides an interdisciplinary Doctoral (PHD) Study Programme for recent university graduates as well as professionally experienced junior researchers.

The Dresden Leibniz Graduate School has been founded in 2008 as a joint activity of the Leibniz Institute of Ecological and Regional Development (IOER), Technische Universität Dresden (TU Dresden) and Academy for Spatial Research and Planning (ARL).

Since 2015 the IOER and the TU Dresden are project partners using synergies between the TU Dresden and non-university research institutes in Dresden.
