DFG establishes 9 new research units
Date:2/11/2011

This release is available in German.

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) is to establish nine new Research Units. This decision was taken by the DFG's Senate at its February session in Bonn. The new groups are intended to provide researchers with the opportunity to address current and urgent issues in their fields and to develop new research strategies.

Like all DFG Research Units, the new facilities will take an interdisciplinary and multi-locational approach. Five of the new groups involve international projects in which researchers will collaborate with colleagues in Denmark, Israel, the Netherlands, the Philippines and Switzerland.

The nine Research Units cover all the DFG's major research areas, from life sciences to natural and engineering sciences right through to humanities and social sciences. Topics covered include such diverse subjects as multiscale 3D modelling for planning subway and tram routes, the creation of new algorithms and communication strategies for electricity transmission networks, and the geometry and physics of spatially coincident structures. Other groups will examine the influence of the omnipresent online media on political communication and how changes in rice cultivation in Southeast Asia affect climate change.

During the first three-year funding period, the nine new Research Units will receive a good 19.3 million euros in total funding. Adding these new Research Units will bring the total number of DFG-funded Research Units to 220.
