DFG establishes 10 new research training groups
Date:12/6/2010

This release is available in German.

In order to further strengthen the position of early career researchers in Germany, the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) is establishing ten new Research Training Groups (RTGs). This decision has just been taken by the relevant DFG Grants Committee in Bonn. The new Research Training Groups will also provide doctoral researchers with the opportunity to achieve their doctorates within a structured research and qualification programme at a high level of subject-specific expertise.

During the first four-and-a-half-year funding period, the new doctoral programmes will receive a total of almost 30 million euros in DFG funding. In addition to the ten new groups, the Grants Committee also approved the renewal of 25 Research Training Groups for an additional period. The DFG is currently funding 215 Research Training Groups, 54 of which are International Research Training Groups involving close collaboration of the participants with universities abroad.

At its second session this year, the Grants Committee had a particularly large number of funding proposals upon which to make decisions. Following the previous review processes, the Committee received 15 proposals for the establishment of new Research Training Groups and 33 RTG renewal proposals. "This demonstrates the extraordinarily high level of interest expressed by universities in Research Training Groups and the success of this model of structured doctoral training, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year," emphasised DFG President Professor Matthias Kleiner following the Committee meeting. Funding early career researchers, he said, is one of the DFG's "core objectives". For this reason, the organisation has further increased the funding available for Research Training Groups. The money comes originally from the
