As part of the Leibniz Collaborative Excellence funding programme, projects that are particularly innovative, and which require collaborative networking within and outside of the Leibniz Association in order to succeed, are to be funded.

In this way, already established Leibniz topics are to be further consolidated, new fields of research explored, and collaborations in terms of developing academic sites and regions promoted further. The programme continues to focus on expanding both interdisciplinary and international collaborations for solving complex challenges, as well as on the promotion of research in participative structures such as Citizen Science. There is a focus on high-risk research with the potential to achieve scientific breakthroughs, particularly if they help overcome complex challenges.


Here you will find an overview of all funded projects.
