Collaborative Research Center SFB/TR 8
The Collaborative Research Center/Transregio's „
In November 2006, after examining the outstanding achievements of the research program to date, the German Research Foundation (DFG) decided to continue funding the SFB/TR 8 for the period up to 2010. Having worked out the theoretical foundations of spatial cognition and developed prototypes, research will now focus on interactive assistance systems, robot navigation and architecture applications.
During the first funding phase (2003-2006), the DFG supported a total of 13 SFB/TR 8 projects, producing around 6.6 million euros. In its second phase, the program has been extended to include 15 projects, which have received a total of 9.5 million euros in funding.
