Legal information

Research training groups are institutions of the University and must as such be set up by the responsible committees in accordance with university law. Such action requires a resolution of the Presidium in accordance with Section 11 para. 2 sentence 2 no. 10 Basic Rules as well as a subsequent resolution of the Senate in accordance with Section 15 para. 5 sentence 1 no. 4 Basic Rules. All research training groups, irrespective of their funding, must be formally set up in this way. If research training groups are intended to receive third-party funding, it is advisable to obtain the necessary resolutions (subject to granting of third-party funding) in advance before the application is submitted to the sponsor.
