6 new research units established
Date:7/20/2010

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) is setting up six additional Research Units to facilitate transregional and interdisciplinary cooperation among researchers. This decision was taken by the DFG's Senate at its summer session within the scope of the organisation's annual plenary meeting in Berlin. The new networks are intended to provide researchers with the opportunity to address current and urgent issues in their fields and to develop new methods for tackling them.

The Research Units established are concerned with such issues as the role of molecule groups in neurophysiological processes and ways in which correlated solids can be optimally analysed using computer calculations. One of the new units established is a "DFG-Reserach College", a type of Research Unit specifically tailored to research methods in the humanities and social sciences. This Research Unit is characterised by a long-term, international approach, a concept enabling research into broad-based issues, in this case, the Mamluk era. Several of the Research Units established are interdisciplinary and international in nature, involving cooperation with India, Austria and Switzerland.

During the first funding period, the new Research Units will receive a total of 15.3 million euros in funding over a three-year period (for the DFG-Research College, a four-year period). This brings the total number of DFG-funded Research Units to 215.

The new Research Units in detail (in alphabetical order by coordinating university):

The "Dynamical Mean-Field Approach with Predictive Power for Strongly Correlated Materials" Research Unit is working on developing a new standard in the computer-assisted examination of correlated solids. Electronically correlated materials have unusual properties and are therefore of great interest, not only for basic research, but also for future technological applications. Based on the "Dynamic Molecular Field
