The DFG-financed Research Training Group “Statistical Modelling“ linked theory and practice in applied statistics, focussed on four areas:

1.  Relation between data collection and modelling,
2.  Basic principles of modelling,
3.  Empirical models,
4.  Algorithms for the validation and realization of statistical models.

General topic is the interaction in statistical research.

Members of the Research Training Group are the Professors of the Department of Statistics, Technische Universität Dortmund. Speaker of the group is Prof. Dr. Joachim Kunert.

The Research Training Group usually offered up to 12 full time grants for PhD students. Additionally, PhD students from the Department of Statistics participated in the group.

National and international guest scientists took part in the research training program that included regular guest lectures, courses and conferences in various fields of statistics. PhD students were encouraged to present their research on international conferences and meetings. Thus, international scientific networking was fostered, and the group members got stimulation from outside the Research Training Group. The annual “Autumn Conference” was an additional means of control and positioning for both PhD students and the Department of Statistics’
