In the Collaborative Research Centre (SFB or CRC) programme, the German Research Foundation (DFG) promotes academically challenging, long-term interdisciplinary projects that contribute to building the profiles of the universities involved. A traditional Collaborative Research Centre is generally run by the scientists and researchers at one university, while Transregios are applied for and implemented in contrast by multiple universities together.

You will find all of the Collaborative Research Centres and Transregios that are being coordinated by the scientists and researchers at TU Darmstadt or in which TU Darmstadt is participating, as well as the completed projects at TU Darmstadt or those with TU Darmstadt participation, in the list below.

Information about the application process and about the funding programme Collaborative Research Centre/Transregio can be found on the DFG website.
