Good to know

Research Training Groups are institutions at RUB that devote themselves completely to the qualification of the next generation of academics. The aim is to intensively prepare the graduates for their research careers while also supporting their early academic independence. The Research Training Groups are funded for a maximum of nine years by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The programme is open to all fields, and an interdisciplinary orientation to the Research Training Groups is desired.
