DFG Schwerpunktprogramm 1276
There are – upon application – several possibilities of financial support for projects which are approved in Metström, such as
Postdocs and assistant professors offer to doctoral researchers (candidates) once or twice a year two- or three-day-lasting introductory courses into basic and specialist knowledge in participating disciplines. That implicates that postdocs and assistant professors will have the possibility to collect teaching experience in front of a multidisciplinary audience, doctoral candidates will receive a specific knowledge gain in terms of the content of the main focus, and young scientists will be allowed to become cross-linked beyond boundaries of discipline with their co-workers at an early stage.Some possible subjects of the workshops:
(It is allowed, of course, but not absolutely essential to invite the older scientist’s generation to the talk.)
In general the projects of the main focus will be joint projects of teams, which are recruited from at least two of the three involved disciplines. Stays of several weeks of the scientific employees with the respective partner’s teams should advantage a quick and narrow cooperation of the employees.
For such stays there will be set concrete common targets in cooperation with the project managers. Also between related projects, such an exchange can be agreed, for instance in order to transfer knowledge or technology.
Once to twice within a period of application (two years) there will have place summer courses, in which subjects of common interest for the main focus can be treated.
