Grand Challenge Initiative Social Cohesion – Berlin University Alliance
The overarching aim of the Exploration Projects Social Cohesion is to understand the global conditions, dynamics, perspectives and limitations of social cohesion and to demonstrate potential structures that could provide solutions for a future society characterized by sustainable success and stability. The funding program supports research on topics that demand new and innovative methods, questions, directions and approaches. In pursuing this goal, the Berlin University Alliance wants to explicitly show its support of groundbreaking projects that employ new approaches. An additional aim of the Exploration Projects is the development of larger, long-term research groups.
The selection process is two-stage. Firstly, all proposals will be assessed by an expert committee that consist of international experts in the field of social cohesion as well as experts from the Berlin University Alliance. Up to 15 proposals will be selected and invited to a project pitch.
