Funding for emerging research
The German Research Foundation (DFG) provides funding for the Reinhart Koselleck Projects which aim to give researchers the opportunity to pursue exceptionally innovative projects. The funding is provided for a period of five years and is intended for staff, scientific equipment, consumables, travel and publication costs. The total funding received during this period is between 500,000 and 1.25 million euros.
Two professors at FAU’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering currently receive funding as part of the Reinhart Koselleck Projects: Patrik Schmuki, Chair of Corrosion and Surface Technology, and Peter Greil, Chair of Glass and Ceramics.
