CRC 1182 Young Investigator Award

The aim of the Young Investigator Award is on the one hand to support the young researchers of CRC 1182 by providing them the possibility to develop their own independent research project, and on the other hand to provide the entire CRC 1182 with the possibility to gain new scientific input and strengthen the networking of research projects. Therefore, once a year, CRC 1182 supports 2 young researchers with 15,000 €* each.
