Collaborative research - Research Training Groups
Research Training Groups are established by universities to promote young researchers. They are funded by the 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.
The application process consists of two steps: The submission and approval of a draft proposal is followed by the submission of the complete establishment proposal and an on-site review by the DFG.

We consult with you regarding the preparation of your proposals, facilitate the compilation of the research profiles of participating researchers, help you when it comes to the cooperation with universitary committees, confer with the DFG and offer you an extensive reviewing service.
