News from May 14, 2019

At Humboldt Universität the Research Training Group “Dynamic Integration – Law in-between Harmonisation and Plurality in Europe (DynamInt)” will take up its work in the fall of 2019. It will be funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for four years at first. The RTG  aims to analyze disintegrative processes such as Brexit, the currency crisis, and the democratic deficit, as well as the insistence on nation-state sovereignty from a legal perspective. In these analyses, the harmonization and plurality of European law should be understood as equally important mechanisms of European integration.

The Research Training Group (GRK) 2046 “Parasite Infections: From Experimental Models to Natural Systems,” which is based at Freie Universität Berlin, will be supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for another funding period. Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, the Robert Koch Institute, the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology, and the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces are also involved.

The DFG will also fund the Research Training Group “Urban Water Interfaces” (UWI) for a further four and a half years. UWI is run in close cooperation between Technische Univeristät Berlin and the Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB) Berlin. It addresses the role of natural and technical interfaces in urban water cycles.
