Institute to study social cohesion

A network of 11 universities and research institutes from 10 German states has won federal funding to develop an institute for social cohesion, which will study how people with different characteristics are integrating in Germany.

During an initial one-year planning phase across 2019, the 11 institutions will be given €120,000 by the federal education ministry to help them develop a shared concept for the institute, the University of Konstanz announced on 28 September.

Once that concept—including a research programme and leadership structure—has been agreed with the ministry, the institute will run for a further four years with annual funding of up to €10 million.
