DFG Research Centers are a new mechanism for funding research which was established in 2000. They are intended to create internationally renowned centers of excellence at the universities.

These DFG Research Centers are an essential strategic support instrument for the DFG. Their aim is the concentration of scientific competence in fields of innovative research and the creation of time-limited research centers of international renown at the universities.

Applicants are scientifically oriented universities aiming to create a new focal point based on their existing structures. The thematic emphasis has to include a high degree of interdisciplinary cooperation. Networking with other research facilities existing on-location is furthermore desirable. Cooperations with industrial partners is possible within the framework of a DFG Research Center.
