This cross-cutting theme bridges the often-distinct areas of top-level research and study, and connects excellent researchers to the world of students, and will implement two sets of measures. The Berlin University Alliance Joint Courses and Programs aims to substantially extend and develop joint study courses as part of the Alliance’s integrated research environment. The Berlin Student Research Opportunities Programx (StuROPX) aims to create joint support programs for the advancement of students with an interest in research, thus strengthening the link between top-level research and teaching. Both measures enable students to gain broader access to courses at all four partner institutions, to profit from tailor-made training courses emerging from activities in research, knowledge exchange, and research quality, and to get actively involved in research projects in the context of the Grand Challenge Initiatives.
