Research Initiatives

From 2021 onwards to tackle pressing global issues and to provide the basis for answering future questions, IHS has developed a multi-year framework for its scientists encompassing four interdisciplinary research initiatives. At present, the initiatives are projected to extend to four years each and are supported with starting funding of € 240,000 per year.  

The aim is to create further know-how and capacities in specific areas in which IHS has proven leadership. The research initiatives foster the interdisciplinary long-term cooperation between the experts at the Institute, lay the foundation for further successful funding applications and contract research and facilitate the pursuit of responding to pressing issues in the interest of the public.
