Encouraging high-risk research: DFG approves funding for 2 new Reinhart Koselleck projects
Date:2/17/2009

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) has announced that it will fund two new especially innovative and high-risk research projects. The Joint Committee of Germany's largest research funding organisation, located in Bonn, has approved funding for two new Reinhart Koselleck Projects. Professor Margit Zacharias, a nanotechnologist from Freiburg, and Professor Reinhard Drner, an atomic physicist from Frankfurt, have each been awarded 1.25 million euros, which they will be able to use flexibly for their projects over the next five years.

"With our Reinhart Koselleck project funding we aim to promote outstanding researchers who have adventurous ideas and are willing to undertake higher-risk research," commented Professor Matthias Kleiner, President of the DFG, during the DFG's Joint Committee session. It was the second time that the Joint Committee has approved funding under this programme, following the first Reinhart Koselleck awards in December 2008, when six researchers were granted Reinhart Koselleck Project funding. The Reinhart Koselleck programme, named after the late renowned historian from Bielefeld, who died in 2006, fills a gap in the DFG's funding programmes and in the German research funding landscape as a whole. "In the past even noted researchers who had wanted to do promising, higher-risk research had almost no way of applying for funding," said the President of the DFG. Since it is usually more difficult to plan especially innovative and high-risk research than is the case for normal research work, only a five-page project outline is required to apply for Reinhart Koselleck Project funding. In addition to the ambitious project ideas, the applicants' proven track records play a crucial role in the review process. "The Koselleck Projects," said Kleiner, "are an enormous vote of confidence that needs to be earned." The DFG's Joint Committee found that these very demanding requirements were met by the project
