Research Training Groups

DFG research training groups at JLU

DFG Research Training Groups (RTGs) are university institutions with a focused research program and a structured qualification concept to support early career researchers. The DFG will fund RTGs for a maximum of nine years. A variant of the RTG is the International RTG, which is carried out together with a foreign research institution.
