Research Training Groups (DFG)

Research Training Groups are temporary higher education institutions for promoting young academic graduates. They provide postgraduate students with the opportunity to carry out their doctorates within the framework of a coordinated research programme implemented by several professors from as broad a range of disciplines as possible. They also provide a systematically organized study programme that equips postgraduate students with a broader understanding of the specific academic field. Research Training Groups are generally also funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
