The Graduiertenkolleg 'global structures' is a structured Ph.D. program
supported by the DFG and the mathematical institute of the University
of Cologne. The Kolleg features Ph.D. fellowships and an extensive research
and teaching program.
Since its projects are mostly located between the classical branches
of mathematics, the program unites researchers and Ph.D. students from
different mathematical backgrounds, furthering their interdisciplinary
exchange and combining their different competences for the study of
global structures. Nonetheless, the division into three work groups
with additional individual activities guarantees the continued in-depth
education of the participants in their own disciplines.
