DFG Office North America: New York City and Washington DC
The USA and Canada play a leading role within the context of increasing globalization in science and research. North America – and especially the USA – continues to be the most competitive research region in the world. More than a quarter of the global funds spent on research and development are invested here, and more than half of all DFG-funded research fellows travel to North America after completing their doctorate for their important first career step.
The DFG maintains regional expertise at its headquarters in Bonn as well as running its own North American office in two locations, Washington D.C. and New York City.
Together, these two offices facilitate contact between scientists and researchers in Germany and North America, support early-career researchers here on a DFG fellowship, and organize outreach activities to showcase German research regionally.
Joris Lammers of the DFG-funded Cluster of Excellence “ECONtribute” and Matt Baldwin of the University of Florida discussed the ramifica-
tions of the insight that people are guided by their gut instinct more often than supporters of rational intelligence would like. Interner Linkmore
