What are Cooperation Groups? / What is the goal of a Cooperation Group?
Cooperation Groups are consortia of two to five Principal Investigators (PIs) with a maximum of twelve fellows (in total) in the core Cooperation Group working together in research projects.
The Cooperation Groups should collaborate on an interdisciplinary basis and develop joint research ideas. The format of the Cooperation Group is intended to provide maximum organizational flexibility for each cooperation, the structure of which can be chosen by the Cooperation Groups themselves. Flexible funding opportunities should also promote mobility for researchers and graduate students from Berlin and Oxford working on joint projects. The goal is to establish long-term relationships and international networks possibly with the support of third-party funding.
