Nature Career Guide recommends research in Germany, also because of the Collaborative Research Centres

June 27, 2019 13:8

In its March edition, the Nature Career Guide recommends international researchers to move to Germany. The Collaborative Research Centres of the German Research Foundation (DFG) are named as one of ten reasons for this.

Collaborative research
Germany has more than 270 collaborative research centres that are funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for periods of up to 12 years, giving researchers the time to work on complex, long-term, multidisciplinary projects across universities and institutes. In 2017, the DFG spent nearly €3.2 billion on research funding. Such spending efforts are paying off, says cancer researcher Ivan Dikic, who is originally from Croatia but has been in Germany for 15 years and now heads the biochemistry department at Goethe University Frankfurt. “The German government has invested a lot more money in top-class science, and that attracts a lot of highly talented people,” he says.
