Continued Funding for the German-Chinese Research Training Group

DFG grants a further four and one-half years of funding

The Research Training Group Stochastics and Real World Models, a joint project involving academics from Bielefeld University and colleagues from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, has been granted an immediate four and one-half years of further financial support from the German Research Foundation (DFG). The core of the project is the joint training of young researchers within the framework of a structured doctoral degree programme. Starting this autumn, 15 doctoral students in Bielefeld and 20–25 in Beijing will receive joint training in stochastics and its applications, and their doctoral theses will be supervised jointly by Chinese and German academics. Up to the present, more than 30 young researchers have completed their doctorates within the framework of this German-Chinese exchange programme. Many of them are now working on their further academic careers in either Europe or China.

"We are particularly delighted that the DFG has granted us a budget of about 2.5 million Euro on the basis of our proposal – that is almost one million more than we got in the first funding period. It means that we shall be able to make our postgraduate training even better, and help our young people even more to make the best of their individual potentials," explained Professor Dr. Michael Röckner, the Speaker of the Research Training Group. "At present, we are examining 120 applications from all over the world for the 7 currently announced scholarships. Despite the strong international competition, it is particularly remarkable to see how well our own students at Bielefeld can hold their own. During the last funding period, 8 of the 18 three-year scholarships were awarded to students from Bielefeld."

Rektor Prof. Dr.-Ing. Gerhard Sagerer was exceptionally pleased about the extension of funding: "This once again underlines the fact that Mathematics at Bielefeld is a global player with internationally renowned scientists. At the same time, the cooperation with physicists and economists also demonstrates how the founding concept of interdisciplinarity remains one of the truly major strengths of Bielefeld University." The International Research Training Group Stochastics and Real World Models , Speakers: Prof. Dr. Michael Röckner, Bielefeld, Prof. Dr. Zhi-Ming Ma, Beijing) is a joint project run by Bielefeld University and the Chinese Academy of Sciences. It is an outcome of more than 20 years of cooperation between mathematicians and physicists within the BiBoS research centre (Bielefeld-Bonn Stochastics) reinforced by academics at the IMW (Institute of Mathematical Economics). The IRTG is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). With this funding, it can offer scholarships to 15 postgraduate students, organize regular guest lectures by specialists from throughout the world, and offer its students an exchange programme with our partner in Beijing.
The IRTG is an interdisciplinary institution that links training postgraduates to become specialists in probability theory to applications in physics and economics.
