DFG extends RTG 2561 for the second funding period

2024-05-10 |

After the successful review of the Continuation Proposal in February, DFG decided to extend Research Training Group (RTG) 2561 for its second funding period on 8. May 2024. The second funding period starts on 1. October 2024 and lasts until 31. March 2029. A budget of more than 4 million Euros for this period was granted.

The scope of the RTG relates to the development, characterization and modelling of novel, revolutionary multi-phase composite systems capable of withstanding temperatures substantially beyond 1300°C and harsh environmental conditions as far as mechanical behaviour, environmental resistance and durability are concerned.

Still within the first funding period, the RTG’s second PhD cohort has already started in 2023 and the third PhD cohort will start in 2026. The doctoral students as well as all participating principal investigators from Karlsruher Institut für Technologie, Technische Universität Darmstadt and DECHEMA Forschungsinstitut Frankfurt are very grateful to the DFG for this funding and are happy to announce this success.
