InterACt is part of the Leibniz Science Campi, they serve the regional networking of Leibniz institutions with universities and other partners (other research institutes, commercial enterprises, etc.) in order to focus on clearly defined topics of academic and practical relevance.
The aim of the collaboration is to generate critical mass and create academic centres with international visibility. This, in turn, serves to consolidate the strategic collaboration of the partners in the long term. Leibniz ScienceCampi are intended to harness, structure and tackle innovative fields of research. Leibniz ScienceCampi are distinguished by the fact that they also facilitate high-risk research thus forging new scientific paths. The funded projects must not only stand out for their high academic quality, but also aim to be of relevance to society. Leibniz ScienceCampi can be funded in two funding phases of four years each: the first phase is intended to provide an opportunity to pool expertise and test new ideas, while the second phase must be used to demonstrate that a ScienceCampus can implement the potential developed during the first phase.
