Jülich, 27 June 2012 – In a newly established collaborative research centre (SFB), scientists from the University of Bonn (lead partner), Forschungszentrum Jülich and TU Munich are cooperating with three research institutions in Beijing, China. For the new SFB “Symmetries and the Emergence of Structure in QCD", funding of about € 5 million has been granted from the German Research Foundation (DFG) and about € 4 million from the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC). The project has been approved for four years and can be subsequently extended twice.
