Schwerpunktprogramm 2357: Jüdisches Kulturerbe

Das Schwerpunktprogramm will interdisziplinär und multiperspektivisch die Entwicklungen sowohl des gesellschaftlichen und kulturpolitischen Stellenwerts als auch des Umgangs mit jüdischem Kulturerbe in Europa erforschen. Dabei widmet es den historischen und gegenwärtigen Beziehungen zwischen Gesellschaft, jüdischem Kulturerbe und politischen, wirtschaftlichen, religiösen und soziokulturellen Differenzordnungen besondere Aufmerksamkeit.

Ziel des Schwerpunktprogramms ist eine Reflexion der Diskursivierung des kulturellen Erbes von Juden und Jüdinnen in Europa. Teams von Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftlern, die sich auf interdisziplinärer Ebene kritisch mit den materiellen und immateriellen Gegenständen, Entstehungszusammenhängen und Transmissions- und Innovationsprozessen jüdischen Erbes auseinandersetzen, können sich am Schwerpunktprogramm beteiligen, ebenso alle, die Fragen nach Strategien zur Einbindung jüdischer Gemeinschaften und Institutionen in die Prozesse der Patrimonialisierung ihres Erbes nachgehen.

Schwerpunktprogramm 2349: Genomic Basis of Evolutionary Innovations (GEvol)

The goal of the Priority Programme is to exploit new methods to reveal in the insect taxon the role of: coding vs. regulatory changes, transposable elements, epigenetic regulation, gene family evolution, copy number dynamics, structural genomic rearrangements etc. in trait evolution by using multiple cutting edge quantitative OMICs resources (e.g. genomics, transcriptomics and epigenomics). Eventually, the emerging hypotheses shall be tested by functional genetics experiments where possible.

To accomplish coherence and coordination, core projects in the Priority Programme will provide bioinformatics support and training, in particular in the areas of:

  • genomic innovations (e.g. gene family evolution, novel genes, novel motifs, chromosome birth and death, etc.),
  • the evolution and diversity of epigenetic regulation (e.g. methylation, histone modification, etc.)

Schwerpunktprogramm 2332: Physics of Parasitism

Parasitism is a close and antagonistic relationship between two different species. Traditionally, parasitology was concerned mainly with organismic studies, while today’s parasitology focuses on medically-relevant cellular and molecular mechanisms. The Priority Programme defines a new frontier in parasitology, namely the physics and mechanics of parasites interacting with their hosts. The Priority Programme aims to establish a comparative and quantitative framework of the physical constraints and mechanical forces acting at the dynamic parasite-host interfaces.

The Priority Programme has a clear focus on the application of concepts and methods from physics to understand the general foundations underlying parasitism. Both projects from single groups and collaborative projects are welcome. Projects to be considered for funding shall address at least one of the following aspects:

  • the anatomy and mechanical properties of parasites
  • the physics of interaction of parasites with their microenvironments
  • parasitic locomotion in natural and nature-inspired microenvironments
  • the mechanics of parasites attachment to host structures

DFG/AHRC - UK-Cooperation in the Humanities

Both funding agencies want to strengthen international cooperation in these fields, to fund academic research of the highest quality within their own countries, and are aware that some of the best research can only be achieved by working with the best researchers internationally.

Proposals may be submitted in any area of the humanities, as defined in the research funding guides. Only proposals whose primary aim is to make fundamental advances in human knowledge in the relevant fields may be submitted in response to the call for proposals. Applicants who are uncertain whether their proposal would be eligible should contact the relevant agencies for clarification.

Projects must have well-defined joint working programmes, clearly demonstrating the added value of UK-German collaboration. We expect that each partner substantially contributes to the common project; this also includes taking on organisational responsibilities. This division of responsibilities should also be reflected in the amount of funds requested by each partner.

Schwerpunktprogramm 2122: Materials for Additive Manufacturing

The Priority Programme’s main objective is the synthesis of new metal and polymer powders for efficient laser-based 3D additive manufacturing by means of formulations, additivations and (chemical) modifications of both, new and commercial powders. By this, the range of powder materials accessible for laser-based additive manufacturing shall be enhanced significantly. Improving the processability includes requirements like efficient, low cycling time, highly reproducible and precise laser-based additive manufacturing processes. Hence, a recursive research, where the knowledge on materials behaviour during laser-based additive manufacturing is used as input for improved materials design, and vice versa, is preferred. A deepened, preferably predictive, understanding of the material’s behaviour during laser-based additive manufacturing by means of suitable analytical and theoretical examination methods is desired.

The Priority Programme aims to bring together materials scientists and photonics researchers. To this end, interdisciplinary and transregional cooperation between the two fields of “materials” and “laser-based additive manufacturing” in the form of tandem projects (joint projects with applicants from both fields) is highly desired. Projects that are not proposed as tandem projects will need to include additional scientific justification.

Schwerpunktprogramm 2080: Catalysts and Reactors under Dynamic Conditions for Energy Storage and Conversion

The fluctuating availability of renewable energies such as wind and solar power represents one of the greatest challenges in the context of the energy transition. Electricity generated on windy and sunny days can be stored in the form of chemical energy carriers such as hydrogen or hydrocarbons. This requires the use of catalysts, reactors and electrochemical cells under externally controlled dynamic reaction conditions. This is where this Priority Programme steps in. Applied to current questions of energy transition, a basic understanding of microscopic processes on solid catalysts under dynamic conditions and their effects on activity, selectivity and stability will be developed. The interdisciplinary research programme is located in chemical technology and chemical reaction engineering, and is explicitly open to other areas of chemistry, physics or materials science that contribute to the topic.

In interdisciplinary consortia, fundamental and methodological challenges of dynamic operation are examined in five closely connected subject areas:

  • characterisation using “operando” methods, i.e. under reaction conditions in order to understand solid catalysts “at work” under dynamic conditions
  • predictive theoretical description of active phases forming under dynamic reaction conditions and elementary steps occurring on the catalyst
  • kinetics and multiscale modelling including atomic information to understand the behaviour of catalysts and electrodes under technical and dynamic conditions
  • targeted materials design to stabilise catalytically active surface structures and to examine them under periodic reaction management
  • novel reactor and electrolyser concepts for methodical investigations under transient conditions

Schwerpunktprogramm 2074: Fluidfreie Schmiersysteme mit hoher mechanischer Belastung

Die überwiegende Zahl von tribologischen Systemen in technischen Anwendungen wird mit Fluiden, die meistens Öle und Fette sind, geschmiert. In Fällen, in denen keine Schmierung mit Öl oder Fett möglich ist, weil der Schmierstoff im Vakuum z. B. verdampft, wird als Alternative häufig ein Feststoff auf die Bauteiloberflächen aufgebracht.

Im Schwerpunktprogramm sollen die Mechanismen von Reibung und Verschleiß durch die Transferschichtbildung in tribologischen Systemen mit hoher mechanischer Belastung bei Schmierung mit Festschmierstoffen erforscht werden. In der nun folgenden zweiten Förderperiode soll das Verständnis für die Synthese von Festschmierstoffkonzepten genutzt werden. Der Fokus soll auf Anwendungen in Maschinenelementen und in Antriebsystemen mit hochbelasteten Roll-/Wälzkontakten liegen. Die experimentellen Untersuchungen sollen dabei an realen Schmiersystemen erfolgen.

Schwerpunktprogramm 2102: Light Controlled Reactivity of Metal Complexes

The design of the potential energy landscape of electronically excited states in discrete metal complexes is of utmost importance for unveiling and exploiting the photophysics and photochemistry of this class of compounds. The Priority Programme aims at the development of rational design concepts for new functional photoactive metal complexes. At the core of the programme is the fundamental understanding of photoinduced metal-centred processes and the dynamics of electronically excited states of metal complexes, including:

  • development of molecular emitters and sensitisers based on abundant metals to replace rare and precious metal centres,
  • understanding and design of electronically excited states of metal complexes for potential applications in diagnostics, imaging, therapy, and molecule-based sensors,
  • development of conceptually new reactivity patterns of electronically excited metal complexes,
  • providing access to new substance classes based on highly reducing or oxidising electronically excited metal complexes,
  • development of photoinduced multielectron and multiproton processes and
  • understanding of dynamic environmental effects on the excited state properties of metal complexes in soft matrices.

Schwerpunktprogramm 2127: Gene and Cell Based Therapies to Counteract Neuroretinal Degeneration

Gene and cell based therapies take centre stage in the attempt to find effective ways to treat rare diseases. Vision loss due to inherited retinal dystrophies (IRD) is a severe burden for 2–4 million patients worldwide and innovative strategies defeating neuronal dysfunction and cell loss are urgently needed. To further improve the development of therapeutic applications in this striving field of science, the results of the first three-year funding period, new data from current trials and preclinical experimentations as well as the improved understanding of the pathology of IRD require continued work at high level.

The major points arising in this striving field can be allocated to four main topics that are closely related and intercalate with each other:

a) gene based therapies,
b) cell based therapies,
c) factors influencing the outcome of gene and cell based therapies,
d) read-out parameters.
