The internal network of the CRC rests on three important pillars, which are platforms (forums) that connect the three different clusters horizontally according to thematic affinities.

They provide platforms of discussion for all projects with a special focus on three conceptual notions: "Europe", "form" and "theory". In reference to the Greek tradition of the forum as a space of public debate, the three forums of the CRC are designed to provide such spaces of exchange that can gather the PIs’ research on the three central topics. The function of the forums is to trigger the debates among the individual projects on the one hand and on the other, each forum shall result in a substantial entry in the online-encyclopaedia on the respective topic. The transfer of knowledge and research in each forum is supported through a variety of workshops, which enable an intense exchange over several days on the topic in focus.
