Scientific education in HELENA takes place in one of eight thematic fields which are closely linked through interdisciplinary activities and technologies. Graduate students can select and set up their own individual curriculum from an offering of lectures, courses, seminars, retreats, summer schools and participation in scientific conferences.

Interdisciplinary training and transferable skills like basic education in leadership, management and communication complete the program and prepare the graduate students to fill lead positions in research, management, industry and administration.
