DFG establishes first German-Sino Research Training Group

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation) has decided to establish 17 new Research Training Groups. This decision was reached by the responsible Grants Committee in its meeting on 21 April. Amongst those selected from the 42 new proposals are six International Research Training Groups. For the first time, this includes a German-Sino Research Training Group. In addition, the Committee decided that, in the future, participants may apply for funding for network meetings between several Research Training Groups. This measure is meant to support the exchange of expertise and ideas as well as the members' personal initiative. In addition, from 1 July 2004 onwards, the fellowship rates for doctoral students will be increased from 921 to 1,000 per month. At present, the DFG funds a total of 260 Research Training Groups, 29 of which are international.

The first German-Sino Research Training Group, "Modelling the Flow of Materials and Production Systems for the Sustained Utilisation of Resources in Intensive Agronomical and Market Gardening Systems in the North-Chinese Lowland Plain", will deal with environmental hazards resulting from the highly intense agricultural production in that area. The key focus of this cooperation between the University of Hohenheim and the China Agricultural University of Beijing lies on the topic of sustained yield in the sense of environmentally compatible methods of production that are economically and socially justifiable on a long-term basis.

In another International Research Training Group, Liebig University in Giessen, Albert Einstein College of Medicine and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University in New York will collaborate on the project "Signaling Mechanisms in Lung Physiology and Disease". By working on lung diseases in children and adults, the participants will prepare themselves for a career in biomedical research in universities or industry. The participants will work in t
