Coordinated programs

Third-party funding of coordinated programs from multiple sources supports locally, nationally and internationally cross-linked research at the UMG. These coordinated programs pursue an overarching research subject in complementary subprojects for several years and with significant funding volumes (often more than 1 million euros).
