From bone metastases to water supply
Date:7/26/2011

This release is available in German.

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) is establishing eight new Research Units, two Clinical Research Units and two Humanities Centres for Advanced Studies. This follows a decision made by the DFG's Joint Committee at its July meeting in Bonn. The aim of the research networks is to offer the scientists involved the opportunity to devote their time to current and urgent questions in their disciplines and to establish innovative research directions.

As with all DFG Research Units, the new institutions will work across disciplines and sites. All Clinical Research Units bring together the clinical, applied research and basic research fields. And through its Humanities Centres for Advanced Studies, the DFG supports outstanding studies in important research fields in the humanities and social sciences.

The wide variety in the disciplinary spectrum is matched by the diversity of research fields covered by the research groups: the thematic arc ranges from the study of malignant bone diseases, through testing of innovative models for water research, up to the establishment of a synthesis technology for use in materials science. Other topics include elite education in the German education system or with dynamic growth societies.

In the next three years the eight new Research Units will receive approximately 19.2 million euros, bringing the total number of DFG-funded Research Units to 190. The total amount of funding for the two new Clinical Research Units for the first four-year funding phase is approximately 5.1 million euros. Overall the DFG currently funds 32 Clinical Research Units.

The funding period of a Humanities Centre for Advanced Studies is set at eight years. In a first four-year funding phase the two new research groups will be funded with approximat
