Research Training Groups (Promotionskollegs)
The Graduate Academy awards funding through the Landesgraduiertenförderung Programme for the creation of new research training groups at Heidelberg University depending on the allocation of funds by the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts. This funding programme aims at permanently improving the framework for doctoral training throughout the University through the establishment of structured doctoral programmes.
The research training groups selected in 2017 are:
- Art, Culture and Markets. The History of the European Cultural Industries from the 18th century to the present (ZEGK)

Additionally, an infrastructure grant of max. 5,000 Euro per year is provided, for example for the implementation of conferences or training programmes.
