Our Research Group
We are a group of scholars affiliated with Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Deutsches Museum, Institute of Contemporary History (Institut für Zeitgeschichte, IfZ) and the Ruhr-Universität Bochum who investigate competition and collaboration in the sciences from a historical perspective. We are funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). Our spokesperson is Kärin Nickelsen (Chair for the History of Science, LMU).
In our research we are exploring the history of cooperation and competition in the sciences in the 1970s through the 1990s. We focus on three fields:
Cooperation and Competition during the Cold War:
Cooperation and Competition as elements of (trans-) national Science Policies:
Cooperation and Competition as Disciplinary Configurations in the Life Sciences
7. Competing for Sovereignty in Cooperative Committees: Bioethical debates and the development of a regulatory policy for the life sciences in Germany in the 1980s. Applicant: Prof. Dr. Christina Brandt
