Research Units

A DFG research unit is a close working alliance of several outstanding scientists who work together on a research task. In terms of its thematic, temporal and financial scope, the research project goes far beyond the funding options available under the normal or priority funding procedure. DFG funding for research groups is intended to help provide the necessary work force and material resources for close cooperation in the medium term - usually six years (from 01 October 2018: up to eight years).
