Trips for apprentices

With our annual trips for apprentices to other centres of the Helmholtz Association, Hereon gives the apprentices the chance to communicate across centres and to network and get to know each other. The trips for apprentices are for all apprentices and trainers and have been planned and organised by the apprentices themselves for several years now.

In the summer of 2019, for example, Hereon apprentices visited the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research in Braunschweig.
