The RTG aims to establish a close-knitted community of practice. The core network will be the RTG members --- (post)doctoral students and associated members), framed by the PLs as TRR members. Establishment of the core network is prepared by the common training program and the collaboration program. Networking is further supported by a common space for academic writing, either physical at each university or virtual. These writing rooms will be places where researchers can meet, write, work, talk, and experience the presence and practices of others. Writing rooms will be initially structured and supervised by the RTG officer to ensure a constructive working atmosphere and adequate support (in terms of tools, methods, consultation, and reflection), but doctoral researchers will be encouraged to take over responsibility for them.
Travel funds for conferences and extended stays at international institutions further strengthen the networks. RTG members are encouraged to visit international research groups for approx. 6–8 weeks. A short structured mentoring program will be offered.
