DFG Projects

German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research - iDiv - FZT 118

At the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv), scientists from a wide range of disciplines and nations carry out investigations into the Earth's biosystems using state-of-the-art technology and taking into account various methodological perspectives. The research work aims to record the diversity of life on Earth, verify the accelerating biodiversity crisis and decipher its causes and relationships. [...] Read more

Functionality of Oxide Interfaces - SFB 762

The central aim of the Collaborative Research Centre is the fabrication and characterisation of oxide heterostructures with components exhibiting ferroelectric, magnetic, semiconducting and insulating properties, thus featuring additional degrees of freedom for the design of functional elements. [...] Read more

Exploring mechanisms underlying the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning - FOR 1451

We intend to investigate the mechanisms underlying the relationship between plant diversity and ecosystem processes based on the results of a long-term grassland biodiversity experiment that started in 2002. Sixty plant species, native and common to the Central European Arrhenatherum grasslands served as a species pool from which in the main experiment mixtures of 1, 2, 4, 8, 16 and 60 plant species were assembled.

The role of tree and shrub diversity for production, erosion control, element cycling, and species conservation in Chinese subtropical forest ecosystems - FOR 891

The Chinese-European Research Unit has started a new forest Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functioning (BEF) experiment in subtropical forests in China. The objective of this experiment is to analyse the influence of tree and shrub species diversity on ecosystem functioning and services in one of the most prominent diversity hotspots in the northern hemisphere.

EU Projects

From Plastic waste to Plastic value using Pseudomonas putida Synthetic Biologoy (P4SB) - Horizon 2020

P4SB is about the utilization of the conceptual and material tools of contemporary Synthetic Biology to bring about the sustainable and environmentally friendly bioconversion of oil-based plastic waste into fully biodegradable counterparts by means of deeply engineered, whole-cell bacterial catalysts. [...] Read more

Stratospheric and upper tropospheric processes for better climate predictions - FP7

StratoClim will produce more reliable projections of climate change and stratospheric ozone by a better understanding and improved representation of key processes in the Upper Troposphere and Stratosphere (UTS). This will be achieved by an integrated approach bridging observations from dedicated field activities, process modelling on all scales, and global modelling with a suite of chemistry climate models (CCMs) and Earth system models (ESMs).

WindNODE - The Showcase for intelligent energy out of the northeast of Germany.

The joint research project WindNODE aims at understanding the efficient interplay of renewable energy generation and consumption as well as the energy grids in between. Everything should be optimized and made more flexible through digitalization. This takes place in northeastern Germany as a model region, which is also the control area of the transmission grid operator 50Hertz.  Read More

Freigeist Fellowship: Modelling the Socioeconomic Forces behind 21st Century Biodiversity Loss: A Macroscopic Approach to turn Complexity into Opportunities for Action

Our research integrates between Macroecology and several other fields, including Geography, Land-use science and Economics. We typically use quantitative approaches, relying on statistical methods to analyze large datasets. We commonly ask questions with a broad-scale perspective, often global. [...] Read more
