Strengthening independent junior research groups in collaborative research centres

Four of the eight Collaborative Research Centres that the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation, DFG) will establish from July 2004 onwards deal with medical issues. In addition to studying a common heart condition, they will also focus on an improved understanding of the immune system and the molecular foundations of carcinogenicity. One Collaborative Research Centre in the humanities will examine the relationship between images, symbols, behaviour and social changes, while three centres in the natural sciences will deal with atmospheric research, exotic states of matter and nuclear physics. The decision made by the responsible Grants Committee on 24 and 25 May 2004 brings the total number of Collaborative Research Centres funded this year to 272, located at 61 universities, including 19 Transregional Collaborative Research Centres and 14 Transfer Units, receiving total funding of about 363 million.

With its support of Transfer Unit 50 "Application of machine systems and the implementation of the spin extrusion/cross rolling process chain" at the Technical University of Chemnitz, the DFG is funding the application of the results from the previous Collaborative Research Centre "Process chains in bulk metal forming with respect to productivity and environmental compatibility". This continuation reflects the committee's decision to implement Transfer Unit funding after successful completion of the pilot phase as a permanent component into the Collaborative Research Centre funding programme. The funding of Transfer Units aims to continue and extend the involvement of industrial enterprises of all sizes in the basic research of Collaborative Research Centres through application-related cooperation.

Additionally, the committee passed measures intended to make Independent Junior Research Groups within Collaborative Research Centres more attractive. The selection procedure has been streamlined and the strict age limit of
