Cooperation Partners

The establishment of our network of cooperation partners is supposed to encourage a culture of discussion that is as open and broad as possible and should be achieved by means of an intensive and interactive scientific communication. Thereby it should be guaranteed that current research questions will be taken up and new orientations will be shaped. This will be pursued also by the organisation of annual workshops aiming to create a platform for international experts working in similar issues and methodological environment as well as to advise modifications and adjustments to the current YIRG-project.
