Virtual Research Center

Overcoming physical boundaries

Virtual Research Center

The idea of a Virtual Research Center was developed by the MHH research committee to overcome physical boundaries, optimize synergies between different research areas, and promote equal opportunities.

Highly positive resonance and support from associated and non-associated departments encourages us to further develop this concept into an organization accessible to all MHH departments. It will provide

  • Training and education
  • Fostering professionalism
  • Defining and implementing quality criteria
  • Creation of knowledge and resource databases
  • Facilitating access to research infrastructure and resources (provision of state-of-the-art instrumentation enhanced by integration of instruments that are physically located outside of core facilities)

Structure and organization:

  • The VRC is not a core facility and researchers within the VRC are not providing service.
  • Members of the VRC are offering information  and the possibility for research cooperations.
  • The Forschungskomission serves as council for the VCR.
  • The organization is done by the Dekanat in cooperation with the ZIMT
  • The VRC appears in the MHH intranet.
