Independent Research Groups


To promote junior researchers, the independent research groups at the IPK provide excellent scientists with conditions facilitating the raise of their scientific reputation. Without being integrated in one of the four scientific departments, independent research groups enable their heads to qualify for the next career step and to proceed own research projects with enhanced autonomy and visibility .
