SOM signature areas

To stimulate multi-disciplinary research focused on addressing grand challenges like modern health care or the growing worldwide inequality, FEB has decided to establish a number of so-called signature areas. These seven signature areas are seen as “research communities” where several researchers with proven track records, and oftentimes different backgrounds, work on joint research projects. In contrast to existing research programmes and departments, these communities are much more flexible. By supporting these signature areas,  FEB hopes to stimulate innovative, interdisciplinary research projects and foremost to contribute to solving complex societal challenges.
