HELENA Orientation Days

The next HELENA Orientation Day will take place on June 21, 2021 from 9 am – 1 pm. Registration will open on May 17, 2021.

Dear HELENA Doctoral Researchers,

We would like to inform you that we have changed the online format of the HELENA Orientation Days for the year 2021. The next HELENA Orientation Day is scheduled on June 21, 2021 from 9 am – 1 pm. Registration will open on May 17, 2021.

The Workshop “Good Scientific Practice” which used to be a part of the orientation days, will now be offered as a seperate workshop. The first workshop will take place from June 22 - 23, 2021 and is mandatory for all HELENA doctoral researchers who have not yet taken part in the HELENA Orientation Days.

For doctoral researchers who already have participated in a Good Scientific Practice Workshop at TUM/LMU or external, participation in the HMGU Good Scientific Practice Workshop may be waived after consultation with the HELENA Team.

In order to approve an external Workshop in Good Scientific Practice, we kindly ask you to submit the following documents to the HELENA Graduate Student Office:

  • Description of the original course as it was announced
  • Workshop content
  • How much time was spent on the workshop
  • Proof of participation


Please note that the mandatory elements for HELENA Doctoral Researchers are:
