German Research Foundation (DFG) funds priority program on Living Materials
The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) has established six new priority programs (SPP, Schwerpunktprogramme) which will start next year and will initially be funded for three years with a total of 44 million euros. The programs, which are interdisciplinary and characterized by the use of innovative methods, are intended to investigate the scientific basis of particularly current or emerging areas of research. This includes SPP 2451 “Engineered Living Materials with Adaptive Functions”. It is coordinated by the INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials in Saarbrücken.
