Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Central

CENTRAL-Kollegs

CENTRAL-Kollegs are a format for research-based learning aimed at junior researchers at all partner universities of the CENTRAL-Network. In CENTRAL-Kollegs, student research teams, under the guidance of junior researchers, develop a research project in a subject of their choosing, which they will then carry out independently over a period of several months.

Each CENTRAL-Kolleg consists of a total of three junior researchers and six students in the following composition:

 

 

Through the organisation and carrying out of a research workshop, junior researchers will have the opportunity to gain experience in mentoring, teaching and project-organisation. The independent completion of a research project will allow students to gain their first experience as researchers and to benefit from international exchange through the training offered by specialised international networks.

Each CENTRAL-Kolleg includes two workshops (initial and final presentations; 3 days each), both held at Humboldt-Universität, as well as virtual (web-based) and personal exchange between all those involved during the period between the above mentioned workshops.

CENTRAL-Kollegs are announced annually in springtime. Funding for travel and accommodation expenses is available to the participants from the two CENTRAL partner universities for the initial and final courses of a CENTRAL-Kolleg at Humboldt-Universität.
