Organisation and Management

The HCTS has established the following organisation and scientific instruments:

  • An institutional platform in Heidelberg – the Karl Jaspers Centre for Advanced Transcultural Research – and its branch office in New Delhi serve as the central places for working, meetings and administrational business. The establishment of another branch office in China is planned in the future.
  • New HCTS Professorships, two Startup Professorships, several Junior Research Groups and a virtual collaboratory accessible to all researchers of the Cluster - the Heidelberg Research Architecture – have been established to foster the close connection between research and excellent educational opportunities for young researchers.
  • The Joint Committee on Transcultural Studies, which consists of scholars from different faculties, develops new courses on undergraduate and post-graduate transcultural studies in order to ensure the continuance of the programme.
