RTG 1723 - Globalization and Development


The RTG is a cooperative research and Ph.D. training group of the Leibniz Universität Hannover and the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen and is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

Under the roof of the RTG twelve professors of the cooperating universities collaborate on research and Ph.D. training in the field of globalization and development economics. The RTG started in April 2012 with training about 15 Ph.D. students as its first cohort. The second cohort of Ph.D. students started in April 2015.

The activities of the RTG are complemented by the clusters in development economics of both institutions. Additional external partners include the Courant Research Centre "Poverty, Equality and Growth in Developing Countries" and the former research unit DFG-FOR 756 on Vulnerability in Southeast Asia.
