Up to a million Euros for visiting researchers

Published on 1. Februar 2013, 15:02 h
Four years of funding for the ‘Theoretical Sciences’ network

Researchers at Bielefeld University’s Faculties of Mathematics, Physics, and Business Administration of Economics along with the Institute of Mathematical Economics have been selected for the ‘Thematic Networks’ programme of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). The Bielefeld network ‘From Extreme Matter to Financial Markets’ has been awarded up to 250,000 Euro per year over the next four years. The DAAD is using this programme to strengthen the formation of international profiles and is supporting 21 projects in this selection phase.


The topics in the Bielefeld network range from studying matter under extreme conditions to analysing financial markets. All these topics involve complex systems with numerous interacting components that can be tackled with stochastic, numerical, and algebraic analyses. The aim of the international network is to take an interdisciplinary approach to the different fields. This makes it possible to take advantage of synergy effects in research and training.

The partners in the network ‘From Extreme Matter to Financial Markets’ are the Chinese Academy of Sciences Beijing, the Beijing Normal University, Beijing University, Princeton University, the University of Warwick, the Central China Normal University in Wuhan, and one non-university research institute: the Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, New York. Bielefeld scientists already have intensive contacts with these partners. The aim of the network is to extend these cooperations not only in research but also in the form of jointly structured post-graduate training and, moreover, to expand these cooperations to cover further fields of research in the theoretical sciences. ‘The scientists at our partner institutions provide an ideal complement to the expertise of Bielefeld’s scientists,’ says Professor Dr. Michael Röckner, the Director of the Bielefeld Graduate School in Theoretical Sciences (BGTS).  Röckner continues: ‘Therefore, the exchange permits excellent post-graduate training. It will enable doctoral students to gain international experience and acquire their knowledge directly from acknowledged experts in their field of research.’

The long tradition of cooperation between scientists at Bielefeld University’s Faculties of Mathematics, Physics, and Business Administration of Economics along with the Institute of Mathematical Economics has recently been consolidated by setting up the Bielefeld Graduate School in Theoretical Sciences (BGTS). The BGTS will provide the project with administrative support.

The DAAD Thematic Networks programme is being funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research to promote the development of an international topic-related research and training network with renowned foreign partner institutions. It enables German and international postgraduates, scientists, and lecturers in both home and partner universities to visit each other for research purposes.
