  1. Wo steht die deutsche Polarforschung? Was sind die wichtigsten Zukunftsfragen? Welche Infrastruktur wird benötigt? Dies beantwortet die „Polarforschungsagenda 2030“, die das Nationalkomitee für Polarforschung der DFG unter dem Vorsitz von Prof. Dr. Günther Heinemann (Universität Trier) und der Mitarbeit von 68 Autorinnen und Autoren aus 17 Instituten zusammengestellt hat. Die „Polarforschungsagenda 2030 – Status und Perspektiven der deutschen Polarforschung“ wird als Buch und Onlinepublikation von der DFG veröffentlicht.
  2. To facilitate the support of collaborative work between German and Russian research groups, the DFG and the Russian Science Foundation (RSF) have opened the possibility for joint German-Russian project proposals for the funding period 2019 to 2021 in all fields of science. Collaborations of research teams from both countries are invited to submit joint proposals. At the DFG these proposals are submitted in the funding scheme „Sachbeihilfe/Research Grants“ and will be reviewed in competition with all other proposals in this scheme. At the RSF the proposals will be part of an open public competition for the activity “Basic Scientific Research and Exploratory Scientific Research, Conducted by International Research Teams”. Proposals to the DFG should be submitted not later than 11 December 2017.
  3. To facilitate the support of collaborative work between German and Ukrainian research groups, the DFG and the State Fund for Fundamental Research of Ukraine (SFFRU) have opened the possibility for joint German-Ukrainian project proposals in the fields of physics and mathematics. Collaborations of research teams from both countries are invited to submit joint proposals. At the DFG these proposals are submitted in the funding scheme „Sachbeihilfe/Research Grants“. At the SFFRU the proposals will be part of the joint DFG-SFFRU call. In accordance with the full proposal target date of the SFFRU, proposals to the DFG should be submitted not later than 11 December 2017.
  4. In the past electronic devices have mainly been advanced regarding performance, power consumption and costs. A further interesting property of future electronics is mechanical flexibility, which can come together with advantageous features such as bendability, stretchability, light weight, ultra thinness, transparency, large area integration and easy recyclability. These properties can be achieved by modern TOLAE (thin film organic and large area electronics) technologies. The FFlexCom programme wants to pave the way for circuits and systems for wireless communications, which are fully integrated in TOLAE technologies. Proposals must be written in English and submitted to the DFG by 16 January 2018.
  5. The Priority Programme aims at the investigation of photonic properties of materials with deliberately introduced and controlled structural and/or compositional disorder from a fundamental scientific perspective. Recent developments in this emerging research field showed that breaking periodicity opens fabrication routes for novel materials and devices with desired, unusual and unforeseen optical properties. The Priority Programme’s final goal is to comprehend, artificially design and fabricate a novel class of advanced photonic materials and custom-made devices for a variety of applications, the performance of which is related to tailored disorder within 2-D/3-D architectures. Proposals must be written in English and submitted to the DFG by 7 March 2018.
