Besides promoting interdisciplinarity, national and international cooperation is of crucial importance to the RTG, so as to ensure a connection between the dissertation projects and international research from the very start. In view of this (aim), national and international researchers, who have distinguished themselves in the field of ambiguity, are actively involved in the wort of the RTG. Their participation is to take place in several ways: they help to devise the graduate days and workshops; they advise the doctoral candidates and are in communication with the latter; they invite doctoral candidates to their institutes; they help organize exchange programmes between doctoral candidates, i.e. the candidates of the partners will come to do research in Tübingen, insofar their projects offer points of shared interest.

Board of Practitioners

Another (special) feature of the RTG is its board of practitioners, made up of renowned representatives of professions in which ambiguity plays a role. This offers the doctoral candidates the possibility to become acquainted with special skills related to the production and perception of ambiguity. At the same time, they have the chance to reflect upon the relevance of ambiguity in practice - in various fields and professions. On a more general level, the board of practitioners gives the opportunity of including various aspects of application for the topic of ambiguity in the studies.
