Due to the cooperation of scholars from the fields of communication studies, economics, information systems, psychology and sport science, the Research Training Group offers a research context which allows the PhD students to deal with different fields of investigation and analysis levels with both a disciplinary and interdisciplinary approach.

The Research Training Group will generate more attention for the category "trust" in all subjects involved.
