The funding line strategic networks comprises two instruments, Leibniz Research Alliances and Leibniz ScienceCampi.
By the promotion of Leibniz Research Alliances the Leibniz Association aims at the establishment of thematic foci within the organization. In Leibniz Research Alliances Leibniz institutes cooperate to address topics of academic and practical relevance. These alliances perform research of distinguished scientific quality and reach out for social impact.
The cooperation between Leibniz institutes and universities is in the focus of the programme Leibniz ScienceCampi. Leibniz ScienceCampi serve to assist Leibniz institutes in forming regional networks with universities and other partners (other research institutes, commercial enterprises, etc.) in order to focus on clearly defined topics of academic and practical relevance. The collaboration thus fostered is intended to generate critical mass and create internationally prominent academic centres. This, in turn, serves to consolidate the strategic collaboration of the partners in the long term.
The application procedure for Leibniz ScienceCampi 2020 will begin with an expression of interest submitted until 1 August 2019, and will end on 5 September 2019 with the submission of the completed application.
Expressions of interest and applications will be submitted via an electronic application system.
