In the Integrated Research Training Group (MGK) of the SFBs 1316 and TR 87, respectively, solid expertise is to be developed in the very interdisciplinary field of transient atmospheric non-equilibrium plasmas, low-pressure plasmas and their interfaces to solids and liquids. Early Career Researchers (ECR) funding addresses the individual academic levels from Master students, PhD students to independent PostDocs. The integrated graduate programme (MGK) consists of lectures, training workshops and practical exercises.

The Research Training Group is an important pillar of the Collaborative Research Centre to train and bring together young researchers. The SFB combines four sub-disciplines in a unique way: Astro-, Plasma-, Particle- and Astroparticle Physics. It will be crucial for the success of the SFB to ensure that scientists have a basic knowledge of more than one sub-discipline and learn to speak the same language. The aim of the Research Training Group is to provide a framework for young scientists (ECR, PhD students and postdocs up to six years after graduation) to build a strong network and gain broad expertise in the topics of the SFB.
To achieve this goal, the Research Training Group offers a broad range of courses at the three universities (Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Bergische Universität Wuppertal and Technische Universität Dortmund) as well as an extensive range of soft skills courses. In addition, ECRs are encouraged to invite speakers and organise workshops supported by CRC funding.
In summary, the overall aim of the Research Training Group is to promote superdisciplinarity, independence, internationalisation and career development of ECRs.
