The Zukunftskolleg cooperates with different institutions from Germany and abroad. These collaborations advance the scientific dialogue on the academic level, but also strengthen knowledge communication with the public. Exchange in matters of organization helps to further develop the concept of the Zukunftskolleg continuously. The cooperation with major academic institutions, who partly offer to host the Zukunftskolleg Fellows, serves networking and exchange of experience. Therefore the foundation of collaborative projects and international research partnerships can be initiated.
