DFG establishes 10 new research units
Date:2/17/2010

This release is available in German.

With its ten new Research Units, the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) is intensifying interdisciplinary and multiple-location collaboration among researchers pursuing specific scientific questions and new avenues of research. The DFG Senate approved the units and funding of approximately 22.2 million euros for an initial three-year funding period. The DFG now funds a total of 209 Research Units, the majority of which are scheduled to run for a medium term of six years.

The new Research Units are of particular significance for Japanese-German research collaboration. For the first time, it was possible to provide grants for Research Units from both countries because of an agreement between the DFG and its Japanese partner organisation, the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST). Following the conclusion of this agreement, an initial 19 draft proposals were submitted last year and of these, four were shortlisted by the bi-national review panel. Of these, three have now been awarded grants to provide further impetus to collaboration between Japanese and German researchers. Funding for the Japanese projects will be provided by the JST.

The first three Japanese-German Research Units will be addressing questions from the fields of physics, chemistry and engineering sciences. The Research Unit "ASPIMATT: Advanced Spintronic Materials and Transport Phenomena" will involve researchers from Mainz and Kaiserslautern in Germany as well as from Sendai in Japan. Their work will involve new materials for spintronics, and will use electron rotation for the representation and processing of information, thus constituting a promising approach for high performance data storage. The spokespersons of the Research Unit are Professor Claudia Felser from the University of Mainz and Professor
