The Research Training Group (GRK or RTG) programme of the German Research Foundation (DFG) promotes outstanding and particularly innovative research projects, which are inextricably linked to the structured training of young researchers in each relevant field. The key emphasis is the qualification of doctoral students within the framework of a focused research programme and the development of a structured training strategy designed to prepare them for the complex job market for scientists and researchers. The aim is for the doctoral students to develop an early scientific independence and to shorten the time taken to gain their PhDs.

You will find all of the Research Training Groups that are coordinated by the scientists and researchers at TU Darmstadt in the following list.

Information on the application process and on the Research Training Group programme can be found on the DFG website.
