Research Groups

The Research Groups – diverse and happy to experiment

Members of the Junge Akademie are free to choose their preferred form of work. Research Groups (RGs) have proved to be a successful form – interdisciplinary Research Groups which are established by the Junge Akademie's plenum and which are open to all interested members. Normally the RGs do not limit themselves to discussions among an inner circle: the groups organise larger symposiums and cultural events, conduct studies and publish their research results.

One could say the Research Groups are the core of the Junge Akademie; there have been over 40 of them. Their topics and goals were and are as diverse as the members themselves – but they all share the sense of the innovative and the experimental, of interdisciplinarity and diversity.

Apart from the interdisciplinary academic discourse, the Junge Akademie promotes initiatives at the intersection of academia and society, and it is very involved in questions of science policy – there are RGs for this area, but also very diverse projects. Internationally, the Junge Akademie is involved in several cooperations as well as in a gradually emerging network of similar institutions.
