Contributing to a unique research and training framework

Innovative concepts need advocates and allies. IGSSE and all its members appreciate the financial and intagible commitment of our supporters who are, like us, dedicated to foster interdiscplinary research and training off the beaten tracks.

Since 2006, IGSSE has had strong partners who have provided financial means needed to foster IGSSE´s research and training portfolio. Our graduate school has benefitted from funds for scholarships, awards, consumables and even a state-of-the-art location for the annual IGSSE Forum.

First and foremost, the German Excellence Initiative funds of 2006 and 2012 have helped IGSSE to establish an internationally acclaimed concept in doctoral training and cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research.
