Along with researchers who work on individual projects during their stay at the Wissenschaftskolleg, the Kolleg also regularly invites small focus groups of up to five persons to conduct research on a common topic. Focus-groups should be dedicated to addressing original issues that fall outside the parameters of individual disciplines.There are absolutely no restrictions placed on the range of topics for focus groups. The program does however target projects that require ten months of on-site collaboration in order to complete. The group’s disciplinary composition should be based on the substantive requirements of the chosen topic.
