In Febru­ary 2013 Prof. Dr. Tho­mas Hebe­rer was eme­ri­ted. The Rec­tor of the Uni­ver­sity of Duisburg-Essen has imme­dia­tely awar­ded him a Senior Pro­fes­sor­ship for Poli­tics and Society China in order to pro­vide a plat­form for the con­ti­nua­tion of both his exper­tise in Chi­nese stu­dies and his rese­arch pro­jects. Prof. Dr. Tho­mas Hebe­rer also con­ti­nues to be a part of the DFG Rese­arch Trai­ning Group “Risk and East Asia”, spon­so­red by the Ger­man Rese­arch Foun­da­tion (DFG).
Cur­rent rese­arch pro­jects include the BMBF-sponsored ‘Com­pe­tence Net­work’ “Governing in China: Pre­re­qui­si­tes, Cons­traints and Poten­ti­als for Poli­ti­cal Adap­tion and Inno­va­tion Capa­city in the 21st Cen­tury”.
Coope­ra­tion with natio­nal and inter­na­tio­nal part­ner orga­niza­ti­ons is cru­cial for our rese­arch pro­jects. Of spe­cial import­ance are our rela­ti­onship to the Chair of Grea­ter China Stu­dies at the Uni­ver­sity of Tue­bin­gen and the  “China Cen­ter for Glo­bal Gover­nance and Deve­lop­ment” in Beijing.
