The DFG has approved the establishment of 17 new Collaborative Research Centres as of 1 January 2010. This decision was made recently by the relevant Grants Committee in Bonn. The new centres will initially be funded for four years with a total of €132 million. In addition, 20 percent overhead funding for indirect costs will also be provided for each project.

The new CRCs include the development of an antibiotic-free diet for swine.

CRC 852, "Nutrition and Intestinal Microbiota – Host Interaction in the Pig", will take an interdisciplinary approach in addressing the effect of nutrition on intestinal function and animal health. Researchers at the Free University in Berlin aim to treat swine diseases that have health-policy and economic relevance more effectively or even prevent them. In particular, they seek to achieve greater efficiency in animal husbandry without the use of antibiotics. This research will open up numerous possibilities for animal nutrition, health, and food safety. The potential transferability of the results to humans is a long-term part of the research programme (Host university: Free University in Berlin; spokesperson: Professor Jürgen Zentek; other participating universities: Charité University Hospital, Berlin; Humboldt University in Berlin; Technical University of Berlin; participating institutions: German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment, Berlin; German Institute of Human Nutrition, Potsdam-Rehbrücke).
