The University of Konstanz is comprised of a wide network of research institutions. Our institutional strategy, the Center of Excellence "Cultural Foundations of Social Integration", as well as two graduate schools are being funded within the context of the German Excellence Initiative of the German federal and state governments. Additionally, many Collaborative Research Centres (SFB), research initiatives, units and centres are carrying our research at the University of Konstanz.

Collaborative Research Centers

Collaborative Research Centres (SFB) are long-term research facilities at universities that generally receive funding for up to 12 years. Funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), these interdisciplinary research facilities give researchers from different disciplines the opportunity to work on projects together.
