Deutsche Fassung

Research strategic objectives

The research strategic objective of this research network is to enable the relevant research institutions in Lower Saxonyto participate increasingly and in leading roles in major national or international research projects. It is intended, according to current promotion and support opportunities, to apply and realise larger collaborative research projects of the European Union or the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. It is also considered to apply and realise a "Transregio" at the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation).

An additional goal is to give economic as well as research related impulses by further exploitation of the results. Particularly, the consortium of the participating research institutes along with their partners from clinics, care institutions and enterprises will strengthen Lower Saxony's visibility as competent location within this economic domain which increasingly gains importance.
