Research Groups aim at a long term interdisciplinary collaboration. They provide the frame in which scholars from various disciplines work together on a broader research theme. For an extended time, generally one year, they work and live at the ZiF.

Cooperation Groups

Cooperation Groups

Cooperation Groups (CGs) are concerned with interdisciplinary research projects and offer a high degree of organisational flexibility, according to the needs of the respective project. This can range from the intensive cooperation of two fellows for several weeks (research in pairs) to the cooperation of a group of resident fellows (ca. 4 to 6) for several months to a series of shorter stays at ZiF over a longer period (e.g. 4 to 6 meetings over a period of 2 years).

Workshops

Workshops

Workshops allow for the interdisciplinary exchange of ideas. They range from colloquia on specific questions which assemble smaller circles of experts from neighboring disciplines to larger-scale conferences which discuss the state of the art in a particular interdisciplinary field. The number of participants can differ accordingly.
