ual opportunities in science has already been put into practice. All those in-volved from the applicants and the reviewers to the members of the Grants Committee are increasingly aware of this issue and consider it important to implement concrete measures. "It is pleasing to see how many convincing strategies, in some cases based on the DFG's new research-oriented standards on gender equality, already exist," underlined DFG President Kleiner.

In addition to the 13 new institutions, which will initially be funded for four and a half years, the Grants Committee also approved the renewal of 17 Research Training Groups for a further period. This brings the number of Research Training Groups currently funded by the DFG to a total of 247, 64 of which are International Research Training Groups.

The new Research Training Groups in detail:

  • Using mountains as drinking water reservoirs is the subject of the International Research Training Group "Complex Terrain and Ecological Heterogeneity" at the University of Bayreuth and the Kangwon National University, Korea. The German and Korean scientists are researching various parameters of the mountain landscapes that supply drinking water for more than half of humanity. With the models resulting from this work, they want to better understand the interaction of socio-economic and ecological aspects in the protection of drinking water distribution and land usage. (Host university: University of Bayreuth; Spokes-person: Professor Dr. John Tenhunen; Collaboration partner: Kangwon National University, Korea)

  • The aim of the Research Training Group "Mass, Spectrum, Symmetry: Particle Physics in the Era of the Large Hadron Collider," established at the Humboldt University of Berlin and Dresden University of Technology, is to create closer links among the broad theoretical and experimental expertise in the various research fields of ele
