DFG sets up twelve new research training groups

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) has decided to establish twelve new research training groups (Graduiertenkollegs). The responsible DFG grants committee selected them from 33 new proposals at its meeting on the 9th April. The new training groups also include three international ones in which German junior scientists and scholars collaborate with colleagues from the Netherlands, Switzerland and France. For the first time, a training group is being supported in which a university and a Fachhochschule (technical college) cooperate in the training of doctoral candidates. The DFG is currently funding 282 research training groups, including 25 international ones.

The research training group Naturwissenschaftlicher Unterricht (teaching of natural sciences) at the University of Essen deals with the dissemination of natural science contents in school. It focuses on three levels of analysis: The level of educational psychology addresses issues such as learning mechanisms of pupils. At the level of teaching, didactical aspects of imparting natural science contents are examined. The level of educational research concentrates on aspects such as school organisation. The aim of the study programme is to improve the teaching of natural science subjects in the medium to long term.

The exclusion of certain groups of people is at the centre of the new research training group Gruppenbezogene Menschenfeindlichkeit: Ursachen, Phnomenologie und Konsequenzen (group-related misanthropy: its causes, phenomenology and consequences). Doctoral candidates at the Universities of Marburg and Bielefeld will deal with the causes and manifestations of hostile attitudes towards so-called alien groups, including religious groupings and migrants as well as homosexual and homeless people. These surveys are based on a research project that has been in progress since 2002 and is being funded by the Volkswagen Foundation in which regular interviews are conducted on group-related mis
