Cooperation Groups

Cooperation Groups (CGs) are concerned with interdisciplinary research projects and offer a high degree of organisational flexibility, according to the needs of the respective project. This can range from the intensive cooperation of two fellows for several weeks (research in pairs) to the cooperation of a group of resident fellows (ca. 4 to 6) for several months to a series of shorter stays at ZiF over a longer period (e.g. 4 to 6 meetings over a period of 2 years).

Further Information

Cooperation Groups are a relatively new working format. They mainly address interdisciplinary research co-operations - already existing or still at the planning stage - that frequently develop in connection with special research institutes, research groups or graduate schools. Cooperation Groups are intended to offer such collaborative projects the opportunity of inviting visiting scientists to do research at the ZiF for a moderate period of time (three weeks up to six months).
