DFG Research Training Groups

Research Training Groups are established by the university to promote young researchers. They are funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for a period of up to nine years. Their key emphasis is on the qualification of doctoral researchers within the framework of a focused research programme and a structured training strategy.
