DFG to set up 21 new collaborative research centres in 2000

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) will set up 21 new collaborative research centres for 1 January 2000. This decision was taken by the responsible grants committee at its autumn meeting. At the end of 1999, grants for 19 collaborative research centres will be terminated. From January 2000, the DFG will be promoting a total of 285 collaborative research centres in 59 universities, for which DM 631 Million are available. Three of the new collaborative research centres will be in the Cultural Sciences, eight in Biology/Medicine, and five each in the Natural and Engineering Sciences. The number of initiatives for the collaborative-research-centres programme remains as high as ever. More competition means that a growing number of applications for the institution of collaborative research centres are being rejected, in all 10 from the last 31. Equally stringent criteria are also being applied to extending the duration of promotion for existing collaborative research centres.

Collaborative research centres are normally designed to run for 12 years, and so to enable the universities to conduct more expensive, long-term research projects with regular and rigorous appraisal. The participating scientists are able to co-operate with non-university institutions and also with industry.

Cultural Sciences

The collaborative research centre Standard and Symbol. The Cultural Dimension of Social and Political Integration" at Constance University is to be promoted in the form of a cultural-scientific research unit. Its aim is to examine processes of social and political integration. The participants will be concentrating on the significance of standards for the formation of patterns of social order, and on the forms of symbolic representation of the social sense. This research has been conceived as a contribution to the acquisition of information on the degree to which social integration is subject to processes, the identification of group-formati
