DFG establishes 18 new research training groups

With the aim of further strengthening early-career research in Germany, the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) is to establish 18 new Research Training Groups. This decision was taken by the appropriate Grants Committee in Bonn. The new institutions will initially be funded for a period of four and half years, during which time they will receive total funding of around 60 million euros. In addition to the 18 new RTGs, the Grants Committee also approved the renewal of four RTGs for a further 4.5-year period.

At its first session this year, the Grants Committee received a particularly high number of proposals for new Research Training Groups to review. Once the review processes had been carried out, a total of 24 establishment proposals remained, as well as six renewal proposals from existing RTGs. "The Research Training Group funding structure continues to be an extremely attractive option, and one which is in great demand among universities and doctoral researchers," said DFG President Professor Matthias Kleiner. In view of the high level of interest and in order to be able to approve as many outstanding funding proposals as possible, the DFG has, this year, considerably increased the funding available to Research Training Groups from the funds provided by the German federal and state governments through the Pact for Research and Innovation.

As Kleiner emphasised, the new Research Training Groups will also provide their doctoral researchers with the opportunity to earn their doctorates within the framework of a highly-qualified and structured research and qualification programme. This concept not only ensures high academic standards, but also permits intensive monitoring. "In view of the current discussions on malpractice and integrity in science, this type of close relati
