The Graduate Centre is structured in units. Units will be established at the request of a group of professors, which would like to work together on a common training and research programme. The decision about setting up a new unit will be made by the directorate of the Research Academy after the suggestion of the Graduate Centre and an extern evaluation.  The units will be examined after 4,5 years. On the basis of that, the Research Academy decides if the unit will be continued.

Units can be merged into a common education form.
