Central Academic Institutes

Many of the complex phenomena of our time can no longer be adequately understood solely through the lens of one discipline. Because of this, the Central Academic Institutes approach research topics in an interdisciplinary manner. Each of the institutes pool knowledge and resources from different faculties and embrace innovative research initiatives. In addition, the institutes each work within a network of national and international partner institutions. Their members share research findings with actors in academia, politics, civil society and business. Each institute supports young researchers through different programmes.
