Research areas and teams (overview)

A research group constitutes a basic unit defined by the research interest of its members and the personality of its leader. Research groups are unified into departments. CIIRC values openness inducing cooperation outside of research groups and teams. The January 2014 application for finances from the EU Structural Funds defined seven research departments foresaw three shared platforms in order to stimulate interdisciplinary research and to boost mutual synergies. CIIRC expects creation/rearrangement of research groups. Other platforms may be created also to support horizontal cooperation beyond CIIRC borders. This overview serves also as a guidepost to individual departments and groups.
