Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin

Research Projects

In addition to research in the faculties and departments, third-party funded projects in particular set the accents: research priorities at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin are also reflected in Clusters of Excellence, Collaborative Research Centres and DFG Research Training Groups as well as large European funding projects. Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin has also set up temporary Integrative Research Institutes and Interdisciplinary Centres to promote innovative research across disciplinary boundaries.

German Research Foundation (DFG)

Coordinated Programmes of the DFG

With its coordinated programmes, the DFG promotes cooperation and structural development through supra-regional and in some cases international cooperation in particularly cutting edge research areas. Coordinated programmes also bundle the scientific potential at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)

The BMBF supports the implementation of research projects in subject-specific and open-topic funding programmes. Collaborative projects and research programmes at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin play a special role in this context.
