DFG funds research centres with €230m

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), Germany’s biggest public research funder, is to establish 14 collaborative research centres to further strengthen top-level science.

The centres will receive an initial budget of €164 million over four years from July 2019. An additional €65m has been found for the creation of 13 research training groups that will support early-career researchers. The groups will be funded for four and a half years.

In addition to the 14 newly created centres, the DFG’s grants committee voted to extend the lifespan of 27 other centres for a further funding period. The research centres are the DFG’s flagship programme and are designed to enable innovative, challenging and long-term research collaboration.
