Priority Programmes

A particular feature of the Priority Programme is the nationwide collaboration between its participating researchers. The DFG Senate may establish Priority Programmes when the coordinated support given to the area in question promises to produce particular scientific gain.

In the Priority Programme 2020 "Cyclic damage processes in high-performance concretes in the Experimental Virtual Lab", scientists from 14 universities are working together in a total of 13 interdisciplinary projects to investigate the deterioration in high-performance concrete under cyclic loading. They are supported in their joint work by a central project.
