Special Research Areas (SFB) are long-term research projects of universities in which researchers work together in an interdisciplinary research program.
Within the SFB program several program variations are sponsored. Namely they are the Special Research Areas (SFB), a course of lectures in cultural sciences (SFB/FK) and 'Transregio' (SFB/TR) as well as program additions within Transfer Areas (TFB) and groups for young professionals. International cooperations are supported in all program variations.
The program is supported by the 'Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft' (DFG, German Research Foundation).
