Research Training Groups

Research Training Groups are established by universities to promote young researchers. They are funded by the DFG for a period of up to nine years. Their key emphasis is on the qualification of doctoral researchers within the framework of a focused research programme and a structured training strategy. Below is an overview of Research Training Groups currently running or completed within the last five years at Leibniz Universität.
