The Faculty of Business, Economics and Social Sciences participates in (interdisciplinary) research and education through collaborative projects.
Several researchers from the Faculty of Business, Economics and Social Sciences take part in the Cluster of Excellence „Climate, Climatic Change and Society“ (ClICCS) at Universität Hamburg. This project has received funding from the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) since 2019.
The DFG-funded collaborative programmes support supraregional collaboration in topical fields of work. Researchers of our faculty are involved in interdisciplinary research within research units (Forschungsgruppe), a Research Training Group (Graduiertenkolleg), a Collaborative Research Centre (Sonderforschungsbereich) as well as two priority programmes (Schwerpunktprogramm). The Centre of Advanced Studies in Humanities and Social Sciences (Kolleg-Forschungsgruppe) “Futures of Sustainability” is hosted at the faculty.
Support for young researchers takes place in the European research training group GEM-STONES ("Globalisation, Europe and Multilateralism - Sophistication of the Transnational Order, Networks and European Strategies") and at the GIGA Doctoral Program. The doctoral degree program at the School of Integrated Climate System Sciences (SICSS) was created as a part of the Hamburg Cluster of Excellence Integrated Climate System Analysis and Prediction (CliSAP) with an interdisciplinary profile focused on climate expertise. Starting in October 2020, the Faculty will host a DFG-funded research training group on "Collective Decision-Making".
