Collaborative Track

Our collaborative track offers students at our partner institutes as well as students in Frankfurt the opportunity to get in touch with each other with the objective to plan, design, and execute research projects together.

The encounters will take place through different formats, they can include:

  • digital: get-togethers, workshops, use of working platforms
  • on-site: summer school, fieldwork

Certificate Program “Collaborative Anthropology”

On top of their respective degrees, students graduating at our partner institutes and students graduating in Frankfurt will earn a certificate for completing the Collaborative Anthropology program.

An overview on the Collaborative Anthropology program and on the requirements to earn a certificate (B. A., B. S., equivalent and M. A., M. S., equivalent, or higher) will follow shortly. Please visit our website for updates during the upcoming weeks.

In this pilot project, structures and routines of international collaborative student research are established, which simultaneously promote student mobility and internationalization. The students engage in tandem or joint research with international peers — according to the principle “researching with" instead of “researching about". The pilot project is part of the project “Successful Teaching and Learning – Diversity and Internationalization in Higher Education" (ELLVIS). This project aims to increase teaching quality; to address heterogeneity, diversity, and inclusion; and to promote the internationalization of studies and teaching.


Das Pilotprojekt ist Teil von ELLVIS. In der Programmlinie QuiS des Landes Hessen hat die Goethe-Universität mit ihrem Projektantrag „Erfolgreich Lehren und Lernen – Vielfalt und Internationales im Studium“ (ELLVIS) Mittel eingeworben. Das Projekt ELLVIS hat die Steigerung von Lehrqualität, das Adressieren von Heterogenität, Diversität und Inklusion sowie eine Förderung der Internationalisierung des Studiums und der Lehre zum Ziel. Über ELLVIS werden bereits etablierte Formate weitergeführt und -entwickelt, die durch neue Teilprojekte ergänzt werden.
