International Conference: “Multiple Competition in Higher Education – and Beyond”, April 4th and 5th, 2024


DFG Research group kickoff event

The research group's kickoff event took place from 4.10. to 7.10.2021. The entire research group met in Kassel to coordinate and discuss various items on the program.
One item on the program was the presentation of the progress made in the individual projects in the first six months of the project. Theoretical approximations, empirical planning and initial presentations and results were discussed here. Another item on the program was to make interdisciplinary approaches to the topic understandable and thus strengthening cross-project collaboration in the research group. Here perspectives from business administration, economics and sociology were presented. Finally, the kickoff event provided a framework for coordinating the empirical surveys to be carried out in the projects and also contributed to better networking in this regard.

Spring workshop 2022

At the spring workshop 2022, the status of research in the individual projects was presented and coordinated, as was progress in collaborations on the topics of the research group. The empirical procedure in the projects was discussed and coordinated in order to create synergies. In addition, the interdisciplinary theory development was in the foreground. In addition to empirical research, the systematic development of a theory of multiple competition is also a major goal of our research group.
