Perspective projects

In order to further develop our research field, our network supports innovative research projects that complement and strengthen our research strategy and have the potential for interdisciplinary collaboration. These projects are granted to group leaders who are not yet members of our network on a competitive basis after review by our Executive Board and External Advisory Board.
