Research in Basel
Interdisciplinary research cooperations and the networking of research institutions are of great importance for high-quality innovative research. Beyond the boundaries of departments and faculties, new insights are gained and strategies and concepts are developed jointly that contribute to scientific progress.
At the university level, there is the possibility of groups of researchers from different departments or faculties joining together to form research networks.
In addition, researchers from the University of Basel are involved in numerous national initiatives such as the National Centres of Competence in Research (NCCR), in which the University of Basel is partly involved as a Leading House.
In the European context, networking takes place particularly within the framework of the funding programs of the European Union. Scientists are involved in projects of the European Research Council (ERC) and FET flagship programs.
