More freedom to take risks: DFG funds the first Reinhart Koselleck Projects
Date:12/18/2008

e DFG's Joint Committee, and the DFG has been accepting funding proposals since June 2008.

The first Reinhart Koselleck Projects in brief:

Prof. Dr. Klaus Fiedler (57), social psychology, professor at the Institute of Psychology at the University of Heidelberg

Klaus Fiedler aims to take a cognitive-ecological approach to developing decision making research that includes the ecological limits of rational decision making. With this alternative to traditional approaches to explaining decision making he hopes to find answers to the burning questions of the modern information age. To do so, Fiedler hopes to establish a high-calibre network of leading researchers and stimulate intense debate between younger researchers by means of a special funding programme focussing on the field.

Prof. Dr. Reiner Kirchheim (65), materials science, professor at the Institute of Material Physics at the University of Gttingen

By taking an experimental and theoretical approach, Reiner Kirchheim aims to demonstrate that the well-known effect of surface-active substances can be generalised to apply to defects in solids. This may make it possible to stabilise certain atoms and molecules in materials with defects and to develop novel material properties, for example nanoporous metals as an innovative form of hydrogen storage, or nanocrystalline steel. In addition to this, Kirchheim also wants to find out whether this approach may make it possible to reduce the energy of formation of defects to zero a problem that is also of interest in many other disciplines.

Prof. Dr. Dominik Marx (45), theoretical chemistry, professor at the Faculty of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the Ruhr University of Bochum

Dominik Marx is interested in the theoretical study of chemical reactions that are brought about by mechanical effects on chemicals, and in particular by intramolecular electron pair bonding. These processes are funda
