Funding until 2016!
The TRR 61, which started in 2008, was again approved by the German Science Foundation for the upcoming next 4 years. Physicists, chemists, biologists and material scientists are cooperating within the TRR 61. About 7 Million Euros will be available for the next funding period. In 2008 the TRR 61 was the first intercontinental research project between Chinese and German nanoscientists with regard to its dimension and quality. In the meanwhile the Transregio grew up to 23 individual projects, implemented by groups from Beijing and Münster, which are investigating molecular assemblies and their potential technological applications. In fact they analyse the basic mechanisms of molecular systems, specifically the multiple interactions, cooperative effects and the dynamic behavior of selforganising molecules.
