Collaborative Research Centres are research projects established at the university for a period of up to 12 years. They must meet very high scientific standards and enable researchers to pursue an outstanding research programme in an interdisciplinary context that spans disciplines, institutes, departments and faculties. They provide a framework for demanding, complex and long-term research agendas, thereby concentrating a university´s research potential. The training and integration of young researchers into such projects is an important feature of this research concept.
