Collaborative Research Networks & Training Grants
Collaborative Research Centres (CRCs) are DFG-funded long-term research networks, established for up to 12 years, in which researchers work together within a multidisciplinary research programme. They consist of 10 to 20 projects that are headed by principle investigators of one or several Universities and their partners at non-university research institutions.
For general informations see the DFG.
The centres are also involved in science outreach activities, like the lecture series: 'Survival Strategies' (in German). More info

DFG Research Training Groups (RTG/GRK in German) are established by universities to promote young researchers and are funded for a period of up to nine years. Their key emphasis is on the qualification of doctoral researchers within the framework of a focused research programme and therefore follow a structured training strategy. At the moment the Faculty of Biosciences participates in two RTGs:
