The inter- and transdisciplinary research training group "Mittelstadt als Mitmachstadt" (Middle-Sized City as Participating City) aims to investigate future questions and transformation issues in selected middle-sized cities in order to bring about change through new forms of urbanization and participation. With the support of the Robert Bosch Foundation, doctoral students from the University of Potsdam, the RWTH Aachen and the University of Stuttgart are working on these questions, with a network of medium-sized cities offering them the opportunity to carry out projects and research in various cities. At the same time, the municipalities benefit from new, innovative impulses. The research training group has a duration of 3.5 years.
