Collaborative Research Centres

New developments in the Programme Collaborative Research Centres (November 2015):

On October 1, 2015, the Joint Committee („Hauptausschuss“) of the DFG decided to introduce some changes in the programme Collaborative Research Centres (CRC):

  • Flexibility: The requirement of local concentration is replaced by the requirement of concentration at the applicant university(-ies). The participation of external projects is facilitated within well-defined rules.
  • The assessment of the CRC as a whole will be further strengthened during the evaluation and in the decision-making process. The relevant criteria are: research, people, research profile of the applicant university(-ies), and support structures.

For further information (in German):

Collaborative Research Centres are long-term university-based research institutions, established for up to 12 years, in which researchers work together within a multidisciplinary research programme.
