The DFG established this priority programm in 2019. It is divided in two phases, each with a 6 Mio Euro budget. Phase 2 started in 2022 and runs until 2025.
Here you can find all the funded projects sorted into 1st (2019 – 2021) and 2nd (2022 – 2024) funding period as well as important information about each PI, and whether he/she has an open position in their project.
