Research Training Groups

Research Training Groups (GRK) are sponsored by the German Research Foundation (DFG) to support junior researchers in topical research programs. The groups are funded for a maximum of nine years, and focus on the training of doctoral researchers who plan to set up their own independent research group. Some parts of the program are oriented toward international students, and offer joint doctoral training with one or more foreign partner groups.
