Participation of the Faculty in DFG Research Training Groups

Research Training Groups (RTGs) are institutions financed by the German Research Council (DFG) for a limited amount of time to train young researchers within the framework of a structured project. Doctoral students that are part of a RTG may structure their work to fit a pre-defined project. They also generally take part in a course of study which provides academic and professional support for their specific research area.


The DFG is currently funding the following RTGs within the Faculty of Business and Economics:

  • "Globalization and Development" (RTG 1723)
