The International Max Planck Research School on Trustworthy Computing (IMPRS-TRUST) is a graduate program jointly run by the Max Planck Institute for Informatics (MPI-INF), the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems (MPI-SWS), the Computer Science Department at Saarland University, and the Computer Science Department at TU Kaiserslautern.
IMPRS-TRUST cooperates with the Saarbruecken Graduate School of Computer Science, which is responsible for all PhD students in Computer Science at Saarland University and with the PhD Program at the Department of Computer Science of TU Kaiserslautern.
The MPI-INF and the MPI-SWS are among the more than 80 institutes run by the Max Planck Society. The MPIs are Germany’s prime basic research facilities with world-class, basic research in the fields of medicine, biology, chemistry, physics, technology, and the humanities. Since 1948, MPI researchers have been awarded 21 Nobel prizes, which testifies to the quality and innovation of MPI research programs.
Educating and training junior scientists is of primary importance for the future of science, research, and innovation. The Max Planck Society, in cooperation with German Universities has launched the International Max Planck Research Schools (IMPRS) initiative.
Admitted students receive a first rate, research-oriented education in their chosen area of concentration. They enjoy close supervision by a world-renowned scientist in a competitive, yet collaborative, environment, rich in interaction with other students, post-docs, and scientists. The program is fully funded.
