Areas of expertise

The cooperation of CBS researchers makes a very positive contribution to research. In individual cases, research is also conducted in collaboration with external researchers. The diverse expertise of CBS scholars means that research areas can be studied and developed from a broad range of perspectives. This produces a comprehensive and interdisciplinary analysis of the research projects. The following links provide further information on research expertise.
