DFG’s International Research Training Groups’ Study Framework

http://www.utwente.nl/mb/steps/people/phd/sauer/sauer/sauer-1.jpgThis project is part of a broader study conducted by Technopolis, and aims at developing an analytical framework for better understanding the rationales, features and achievements (or the lack thereof) of the internationalisation strategy of doctoral training groups as implemented by the German DFG. In particular, it tries to answer the following research questions: Can high-level research and research collaboration be stimulated, supported and improved through international collaboration? In particular, which role can support for the internationalisation of doctoral and first-stage researchers play in this context? Is there a productive role for funding programmes such as the DFG’s International Research Training Group (IRTG) programme?

The project is being conducted by a team at the University of Twente, and incorporates contributions from members of both DFG and Thechopolis.

The UT team is composed by Prof. Stefan Kuhlmann, Dr. Gonzalo Ordonez-Matamoros and Dr. Sabrina Sauer.
