The external PhD representatives serve as a first point of contact for PhD students to raise issues to the Max Planck PhDnet. They are elected annually by the PhD student body in April - one per institute. All external PhD representatives attend an annual General Meeting, during which various work-groups are formed to advocate for MPI PhD candidates.
The Max Planck PhDnet is a network representing the 4500+ PhD student researchers within the overall MPG; PhDnet leaders work mainly on improving working conditions and promoting scientific exchange. To access the PhDnet portal, select "Other Users" and "next", then enter your MPG login credentials (most likely your Max Planck email address). You can select "Forgot Password" to reset your login credentials. All MPI PhD students may access this portal.
Our goal is to understand the principles of Perception, Action and Learning in autonomous systems that successfully interact with complex environments and to use this understanding to design future systems
