The Central Administrative Project Z covers all central aspects of the CRC. The Z-Project is responsible for the coordination, organisation, and management of the CRC. The Z-Project’s scientific coordinator, in close consultation with the spokesperson, is responsible for the financial management of the CRC. This includes the purchase of central major research equipment, organizing the employment of replacements, the support service for visiting researchers and Mercator Fellows, as well as organizing guest lectures, workshops, and conferences (sometimes together with the MGK). In addition, the global funds for gender equality, new unforeseeable developments, public relations, and start-up funding are managed by the Z-Project. The Z-Project also organizes the employment of staff members and research assistants, and manages the participant payment, travel costs, and publication costs. The scientific coordinator supports CRC members and guests. Finally, the scientific coordinator is the main contact person for the DFG as well as for the administration of the University of Potsdam and is in charge of the timely delivery of reports to the DFG.
