FiF fellows

An interdisciplinary research forum

Up to five experienced scientists of TU Darmstadt act as fellows of the Forum for about 3 years. Together with the executive Director, the Fellows form the active centre of the Forum. They originate from different disciplinary cultures and represent an already existing interdisciplinary orientation in research and teaching at TU Darmstadt. The fellows define topics and provide new impulses for interdisciplinary cooperation.
