Collaborative Research Centers

Collaborative Research Centers funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) are university-based research alliances that receive guaranteed long-term support. The aim is to foster interdisciplinary cooperation and encourage the concentration of local resources on areas that are particularly promising.
