  1. This Priority Programme forms an integral part of the international AlpArray mission to image the structure of the Alps from their surface down to several hundred kilometers depth in the mantle. It tests the hypothesis that reorganisations of Earth’s mantle during the collision of tectonic plates have both immediate and long-lasting effects on crustal motion, fault kinematics, earthquake distribution and surface evolution. It challenges conventional wisdom by recognising that linked processes between Earth’s surface and mantle beneath mountain belts can only be explained by integrating 3D imaging of the entire crust-mantle system with geologic observations and modelling to enable us to look both backwards and forwards in time, the 4th dimension. This requires a multi- and interdisciplinary approach that integrates geophysics, tectonics, petrology, geochronology, basin- and surface studies. A colloqium will be held in Berlin on the 4/5 June 2019. Proposals must be written in English and submitted
  2. In adopting the initial selection process for the establishment of a national research data infrastructure, for which Germany’s federal and state governments will provide up to €90 million in funding from 2019 to 2028, the Joint Committee of the
  3. Four funding organisations, namely Agence nationale de la recherche (ANR), France; DFG, Germany; Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), United Kingdom and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) will participate in this ORA call. The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) will collaborate with ORA as an associate partner. Proposals will be accepted for research projects in any area of the social sciences and are required to involve researchers from any combination of three or more participating countries. The full call for proposals is intended to be announced in April 2019, whereas the closing date for proposals is expected to be the end of July 2019.
  4. The specific functionalisation of interfaces and the integration of functional nanostructures into devices is a topic of up most importance in the field of material sciences. Through the work of various national and international research groups, the fascinating prospects of integration CCN-based nanostructures and thin layers into opto-electronics, data storage, electro-chemistry, and sensor technologies, are tangible. The goal of the Priority Programme COORNETs is to strengthen the developments of these highly interdisciplinary efforts. Proposals for the second three-year funding period must be submitted no later than 4 June 2019.
  5. Die DFG stellt ihr elektronisches Portal „elan“ zur sicheren Datenübermittlung nun auch für das Programm Kolleg-Forschungsgruppen bereit. Ab sofort können Skizzen, auch für die laufende Ausschreibung zur Einreichung von Skizzen, über das elan-Portal eingereicht werden. Die Einreichung von Einrichtungs- und Fortsetzungsanträgen über das elan-Portal wird voraussichtlich in der zweiten Jahreshälfte ermöglicht.
