For this, the successful Joint Research Group receives a budget of 28.000 Euros (Freiburg side) and 4 Mio. Yen (Nagoya side).
Researchers from all disciplinary backgrounds are invited to apply. The Joint Project Group is designed as a collaboration of a team or group of professors from Freiburg and Nagoya (1-3 from each partner university) around a topic of common interest. In addition, the Joint Project Group shall include up to three junior researchers from Freiburg and Nagoya respectively, as well as up to three additional researchers from other institutions worldwide.
The joint call of the institutes aims to strengthen the collaboration between researchers of the two universities and thus the institutions’ strategic partnership. Collaboration between the universities’ two Institutes of Advanced Studies (IAS) has taken on form with the foundation of the network of University-Based Institutes of Advanced Studies (UBIAS) in Freiburg in 2010. With the joint project group, the institutes intend to enhance their cooperation in academic research and to support highly original joint research combining the strengths of the two universities.
