In March 2016, the Senate of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) established the Priority Programme “Opus Fluidum Futurum - Rheology of reactive, multiscale, multiphase construction materials”. The programme is designed to run for six years. The present call invites proposals for the second three-year funding period.
Young scientists with recent doctoral degrees (postdocs) are encouraged to submit applications. To effectively and sustainably promote the goal of gender equality in research, optimally leverage the full potential of female researchers in the research system and achieve universal gender equality within this system, the member organisations of the DFG continue to uphold the “Research-Oriented Standards on Gender Equality” and take suitable measures to implement these standards and make them viable for the long term. Further information is available here.
Proposals must be written in English and submitted to the DFG by the 3rd of April 2020. The anticipated start date of projects should be January 2021. Please note that proposals can only be submitted via elan, the DFG’s electronic proposal processing system. Please include a title page with your name, your address, and the title of your project in your application. If you would like to submit a proposal for a new project within the existing Priority Programme, please go to Proposal Submission – New Project – Priority Programmes and select “SPP 2005” from the current list of calls. Previous applicants can submit a proposal for the renewal of an existing project under Proposal Submission – Proposal Overview/Renewal Proposal.
In preparing your proposal, please review the programme guidelines (form 50.05, section B) and follow the proposal preparation instructions (form 54.01). These forms can either be downloaded from our website or accessed through the elan portal. Please also refer to the guidelines for submitting proposals which are published at the website of the Priority Programme. In addition to submitting your proposal to the DFG, please send an electronic version (pdf format) to the Priority Programme office. Researchers considering to submit proposals should contact the coordinator prior to submission to ascertain that proposals fit the scientific scope of the programme.
