Applicants

The competences of all the applicants allow the exploration of the various levels of analysis and research areas. Together they developed the research program and the concept of qualification from 2007 to 2012. They cooperate in many other projects which are mainly interdisciplinary in their approach. Different publishing cultures in the subjects involved, differences in the perspectives on trust (individual, organization, society) and the different relations between basic and applied research are an enriching challenge. Thus, a disciplinary value is added with regard to the exploration of the interdisciplinary research problem of trust and communication.
