Research Associations

The Research Associations (Forschungsverbünde) concept stands for interdisciplinary, application-oriented research projects in Bavaria. A research association is a network of scientists from different fields who jointly work on a complex problem. Research Associations are organised in projects and exist mostly 3 or 6 years and include various locations (in Bavaria).
