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.
