As of 2018, eight of the collaborative research centers (CRC) funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) are based in close proximity to the University of Stuttgart: the University of Stuttgart holds the position of spokesperson. Some of these collaborative research centers, the Transregios (TRR), are nationwide, which means research is carried out as a cooperation between various universities. The University of Stuttgart is also involved in each two additional CRCs and TRR.
