As a focal point for social policy research, DIFIS seeks to improve nationwide networking and to intensify interdisciplinary academic exchange. Synergies between the projects, junior research groups and professorships that were and are funded by FIS will be utilized – both within and across other social policy research projects. To this end, formats facilitating exchange will be created that complement existing networks in academic associations and will ensure deeper discussions and closer working relationships across disciplinary boundaries.
