Kolleg-Forschergruppe "The Transformative Power of Europe"


The Kolleg-Forschergruppe (KFG) is a new funding programme launched by the German Research Foundation in 2008. As a research college, it is intended to provide a scientifically stimulating environment in which innovative research topics can be dealt with by discourse and debate within a small group of senior and junior researchers. Key characteristics are a comprehensive Fellow Programme for guest scholars from elsewhere in Germany and from abroad, the promotion of young researchers and the opportunity to be released from teaching duties for a set period of time. The KFG “The Transformative Power of Europe” is one of three research colleges, which the DFG approved in the first funding period.
