Further GRF funding for CRC 677
26th May 2015
After an intensive evaluation process by the DRF (German Research Foundation), the CRC 677 has received excellent recommendations and a further extension for funding over the next four years. The IPN has been participating in the form of a sub-project on public relations and education (TPÖ) since 2011.
In all, about 100 scientists from the fields of chemistry, physics and material sciences and medicine are presently collaborating in the Kiel research association. The following areas will be extended in the final funding period: teacher in-house training and further education, content areas such as forces, interactions as well as overlapping aspects e.g. interdisciplinary scientific work are going to be extended. All outreach measures such as the school laboratory will be evaluated to assess their effectiveness.
