DFG Intensifies Cooperation with St. Petersburg
(07.06.17) At the beginning of June 2017, a DFG delegation led by Secretary General Dorothee Dzwonnek travelled to St. Petersburg. In the last five years, the DFG has funded nearly 100 proposals with cooperation partners in Russia’s northern capital. In addition to the first German-Russian Collaborative Research Centre, TRR 160, based at the Ioffe Institute and the State University, this year nine more research projects funded jointly with the university, were given the go-ahead. The DFG took this opportunity to hold discussions with representatives of various universities and other research institutions at a press conference, workshop and evening reception held at St. Petersburg’s highly respected House of Scientists.
