DFG research training groups become increasingly international

The Research Training Groups of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) are attracting increasing numbers of applicants. At its meeting on 8 October 2004 the Grants Committee on Research Training Groups selected 23 projects out of 66 new funding proposals. This is the highest number of funding proposals received over the past eight years. The programme has become increasingly attractive to international groups of applicants. The large number of new proposals from the engineering sciences is particularly encouraging. The DFG currently funds a total of 270 Research Training Groups, 34 of which are international. In 2004 the DFG is providing approximately 70 million euros in funding for Research Training Groups.

In the newly established International Research Training Group "Economic Behavior and Interaction Models" at the University of Bielefeld and the University of Paris Panthon Sorbonne, researchers are studying the economic behaviour of individuals within society. The main emphasis is on new methods of mathematical economic theory in conjunction with various other approaches, venturing as far as the social sciences. They are studying the interaction between dynamic evolutionary processes, institutional circumstances and human decision-making behaviour. The focus is on combining the strategic aspects with the interactive dynamics.

In the Research Training Group "Trustworthy Software Systems Construction, Certification and Application" at the University of Oldenburg, computer scientists and jurists are studying user requirements for security and trust in software systems, because complex control systems are playing an increasingly crucial role in every day use for instance in motoring technology or in the health care sector. The focal points of the research being conducted by this interdisciplinary Research Training Group are not restricted to the issue of security, but also deal with issues such as reliability, corr
