Research Cooperations

All our research teams are linked to a network of both national and international scientific cooperations. Below is a summary of the Faculty of Mathematics’ third party funded projects as well as of research cooperations both inside and outside of the University.

Transregio/SFB 45

The Transregio-Sonderforschungsbereich 45 "Periods, moduli spaces and arithmetic of algebraic varieties" (Mainz/Bonn/Essen) is currently in its third 4-year funding period.
