New impetus through networking

A networked approach to addressing new questions facing basic research that is the formula for success of the Priority Programmes of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation). On 27 April 2007 the DFG Senate passed a resolution on the establishment of 13 new projects, which will bring the total number of DFG-funded initiatives to 117 from the start of 2008. The new programmes, which were selected from 47 submitted proposals, will receive approximately 63 million euros during their initial funding period. Priority Programmes facilitate the networking of German and international research activities in well-defined, promising subject areas and promote the further development of research by means of coordinated, geographically distributed funding in novel areas. Priority Programmes generally run for a period of six years.

The new Priority Programmes:

The role of ubiquitin-like protein modifications (UbF) in cells will be investigated in a project called "The Regulatory and Functional Network of Ubiquitin Family Proteins". The UbF and network properties that have been discovered in recent years provide the main focus of this project. (Coordinator: Professor Wolfgang Dubiel, Charit University Hospital, Berlin)

"Polymer-Solid Contacts: Interfaces and Interphases" is a project that examines compounds made of polymers and other solids. These compounds are ubiquitous and of great importance, but not yet understood from a scientific point of view. (Coordinator: Professor Florian Mller-Plathe, Technical University of Darmstadt)

The project "Elementary Processes of Organic Photovoltaics" studies energy generation using photovoltaics, an issue that is highly topical from an economic and environmental-policy standpoint. Organic solar cells are of particular importance as a result of the better availability of raw materials for a broader range of applications. (Coordinator: Professor Karl Leo, Techni
