New DFG Priority Programme: Ecosystem Nutrition (May 2012)
The DFG establishes 10 new priority programmes. We were involved in the initiation of one of them: "Ecosystem Nutrition: Forest Strategies for Limited Phosphorus Resources"
|The new Priority Programmes will commence work at the beginning of 2013 and leverage scientific expertise in particularly current and emerging research fields. To a large extent, all newly established Priority Programmes take an interdisciplinary approach.
The new Priority Programmes were chosen from a total of 40 submitted concepts. Each Programme will be individually announced by the DFG in the months ahead, and the funding proposals received will be evaluated using a strict review process to determine their scientific quality and their contribution to the overarching topic in question. Around 60 million euros will be provided for all 10 new Priority Programmes during the first funding period.
