The Zukunftskolleg Research Award was established in 2022 to promote early career researchers. It is designed to honour excellent academic achievements and support the development of the researcher’s academic profile. The award offers researchers the opportunity to advance their research through a three-month research stay at the University of Konstanz. The research stay enables researchers to pursue novel experimental approaches, explore new questions and/or forge further links in their academic networks.

The thematic focus of the award changes each year. In 2022, the annual topic is: The Evolution of Behaviour.

Examples of suitable research questions include:

  • How does evolution shape behaviour?
  • How do collectives respond to evolutionary pressures?
  • How can animal communities change the environment through their behaviour and thus modify the selection pressure for themselves and other species?
