DFG establishes 12 new research units
Date:10/21/2011

This release is available in German.

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) has established nine new Research Units and three Clinical Research Units. The decision was made by the Joint Committee of Germany's central research funding organisation at its October meeting in Bonn. The establishment of the Units will enable researchers to explore topical research questions using innovative methods and approaches. As all DFG-funded Research Units, the new units will implement interdisciplinary research programmes and operate across several sites. The Clinical Research Units combine the areas of clinical, applied and basic research.

These newly established institutions will cover a broad spectrum of research areas; one Research Unit aims to enhance the accuracy of global space-time reference systems, which can be used, for example, to improve the precision of satellite navigation. Other units will study the formation of ice nuclei in clouds and the impact of knowledge on political decision-making. Among other things, the Clinical Research Units will focus on new forms of therapy for chronic bowel disease and specialised psychotherapeutic approaches to treating the mental disorder BPD.

The nine new Research Units will receive approximately 15.3 million euros in funding, and will raise the number of Research Units funded through the DFG to 201. The three new Clinical Research Units will receive approximately 8.2 million euros in funding during the first four-year funding period. The DFG currently supports 31 Clinical Research Units in total.
