The joint project groups are intended to support the collaboration between research groups from Freiburg and Nagoya around a topic of common interest. Researchers from all disciplinary backgrounds are invited to apply. The joint project group is set out as a collaboration of a team of professors from Freiburg and Nagoya (1-3 from each partner university). Additional researchers can be included in the team.

The format has started in January 2016 with two innovative project groups in the field of law and chemistry), both linking particularly strong research fields at the universities of Freiburg and Nagoya.
