The Principal Investigators of the Konstanz Research School Chemical Biology are involved in numerous national and international collaborative research activities. As an important result, agreements have been launched in order to develop opportunities for doctoral students from the respective institutions to meet and to interact. Other possibilities include joint educational activities, or the invitation of selected students from one programme to the events of another programme. Flourishing cooperation also exists with several industrial partners. Besides endeavours between individual research groups, several strong, partnerships to a broad variety of institutions are maintained. Several industrial partners are involved in the annual KoRS-CB course programme either by teaching activities or by offering field trips or excursions. Several academic and industrial partners generously supported KoRS-CB events like symposia and retreats by financing travel issues and donating speaker or poster prizes.
