Connectivity should be demonstrated in the research concept on the basis of previous project and/or publication activities.

  • scientific expertise proven by peer-reviewed publications in internationally recognised peer-reviewed journals or equally renowned book publications.

  • the willingness to participate in the acquisition of coordinated research networks.

Experience in and willingness to cooperate across disciplinary boundaries are also desirable, as demonstrated by existing projects and publications. As the University of Bremen and the University of Oldenburg are bound by a cooperation agreement, active participation in the cooperation is expected.
