High demand for structured doctoral programmes

In response to the increasing number of proposals for its funding programme for young researchers, the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) has decided to establish 26 new Research Training Groups. In its meeting on 15 December 2005 the responsible Grants Committee selected the new projects out of 52 funding proposals. Within the last three years the number of proposals has almost tripled: from 73 in 2003 to 136 in 2004 and to 205 in 2005. The DFG currently funds a total of 265 Research Training Groups, 39 of them at an international level.

"We must ensure sustained funding for this initiative", DFG Secretary General Dr. Reinhard Grunwald emphasised, justifying the increase in funds for the programme from approximately 68 million euros in 2004 to approximately 72 million in 2005. For 2006, a further increase to 79 million euros is scheduled. The DFG also plans to modify this funding instrument. Until June 2006, a working group established by the DFG's Senate will elaborate proposals for a further development of the program. The DFG will therefore not accept any new proposals until the end of 2006.

Five Research Training Groups in focus

University of Duisburg-Essen
The objective of the Research Training Group "Nanotronics - Photovoltaics and Optoelectronics from Nanoparticles" is to develop components for electronic applications. Doctoral students at the University of Duisburg-Essen initially will examine the scientific foundations of nanotronics, which might allow new applications for the conversion of radiation energy into electric energy (photovoltaics) as well as for the exploitation of light energy (optoelectronics). Within the framework of training courses as well as a three month stay in the Science-to-Business-Center of Degussa AG, the doctoral students will subsequently put their research findings into practice. The cooperation with the industrial partner enables them, among other things,
