The CRC is not a separate research institute, but is very much embedded in the structure and functioning of the Society. We are part of a larger department of Research and Product Development, which also includes zoology (including nature reserve “De Zegge”), education, veterinary services, and development projects. Research is concentrated on four disciplines: Ethology, Functional Morphology, Veterinary Medicine and Conservation Biology. Each discipline has its own coordinator, who is responsible for the research projects within the discipline and for supervision of students and postdocs.
