In addition to the focus areas that have been set, the University supports individual innovative research initiatives.
The network offers a communicative and social infrastructure for the cooperative development of the prestige of the digital humanities at the research site of Potsdam. The network’s essential format is comprised of regular round-table discussions that facilitate an informal exchange about ongoing and planned activities among the network participants.

Global change, characterized by increasing nonlinear dynamics and stochasticity, directly affects the individual organisms of natural systems. However, common ecological concepts estimate ecosystem resilience based on the average characteristics of populations or communities, ignoring variation among individuals and their interactions with the environment. Yet, accounting for this individual variation is often crucial for predicting biodiversity and ecosystem dynamics.
Our research network focuses on individuals to understand biodiversity and resulting ecosystem dynamics. We aim to shift the paradigm from classical "averaging ecology" to an individual-based ecology.
