DFG

Our projects founded by DFG:
    • CONTici (in the past, Ben and Matthias Betz worked on that)
    • SFB
    • GS
    • Locating Media

Characteristics:
  • It is the most conservative founding
  • Good for small projects
  • No industry required
  • You can submit any research idea that you can think of but:
  • It should be a real research idea
  • relevant ideas for computer science or information system
  • just science for itself
  • no over work of communication
  • 1 or 2 professors of the same university normally involved, for fostering the collaboration
  • number of positions:up to 3 positions but more likely 1 and half position
  • Ration for acceptance: 30-40% so quite good, but it has to be very technological oriented
  • Disciplines we can aim for: Computer Science; Information System; Mechanical Engineering; HCI
  • Two divisions: technological and algorithm tradition (conservative); more human and empirically oriented tradition (it’s hard to get funding for that!)
Application language:
  • German
  • English
Application process:
  • Because of no deadlines, the application has to be perfect, it can take one year to write it good
  • Particular in term of writing the state of the art we don’t have to forget important people!
Submission process:
  • They don’t have calls so that submissions and reviewing processes are continuously (submission is continuous, whenever you are ready you can submitted!)
  • It has an open scheme
  • 2-4 times a year the central council meet and decide which project has to receive the money
Review process:
Why don’t we have more DFG project?
Our research is user related and the DFG is very conservative it is not real oriented in innovation

Note:

Volker takes note on the declined projects and so you cannot submit rubbish and you can lose your reputation
