Principal Investigators

Principal investigators (PIs) are professors from the respective collaborating partners and the Institute’s own researchers who are primarily responsible for research groups.

The PIs ensure the coherence and further development of the research program as well as the scientific excellence and thematic range of research at the Institute. The PIs are tasked with the scientific and strategic positioning of their research groups and cooperation with other research groups, with assisting the board of directors in developing plans for the strategic development of the Institute, with establishing and dissolving research groups and projects, with preparing guidelines for research group activity, and with assisting in the preparation for evaluations of the Institute by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
