DFG to establish 4 new research units
Date:2/16/2012

This press release is available in German.

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) has approved the establishment of four new Research Units. This decision was taken by the DFG's Senate at its February meeting in Bonn. The purpose of the research consortia is to offer researchers the opportunity to devote their time to topical questions in their disciplines and to establish innovative research directions.

As with all DFG Research Units, the new groups will collaborate across locations and disciplines. Their main topics are computer-aided knowledge representation, the structure and dynamics of ecological networks, new statistical procedures, and nano innovations for optoelectronics.

During the initial three-year funding period, the new Research Units will receive approximately 6.8 million euros. The DFG now funds a total of 199 Research Units.

The new units are as follows (in alphabetical order by coordinating university):

A key research topic in the field of artificial intelligence is knowledge representation and inference, the computer-aided drawing of conclusions from bodies of knowledge. Until now, qualitative approaches have dominated this field. The aim of the "Hybrid Reasoning for Intelligent Systems" unit (HYBRIS for short) is to combine qualitative and quantitative forms of drawing conclusions in new ways. These will be linked with overarching issues of logic-based knowledge representation, which will be investigated jointly and with regard to their potential use by theoreticians and experts from robotics and bioinformatics. (Coordinating University: RWTH Aachen, Prof. Dr. Gerhard Lakemeyer)

"Networks on Networks: The Interplay of Structure and Dynamics in Spatial Ecological Networks" is the focus of a new Research Unit which unites researchers from the fields of physics a
