Evaluation, Studies and Monitoring
The DFG uses evaluations to assess its funding programmes and policies and to identify dynamics in the research landscape. It can then improve its processes and programmes and align them with these dynamics. Infobriefs and quantitative and evaluative studies ensure the transparency of funding activities. Evaluation standards are used to formulate the quality requirements for evaluative studies and the evaluation process.
- Interner LinkEvaluation Standards
The evaluation standards frame the DFG’s quality requirements for evaluative studies and the evaluation process. These standards are used to measure every evaluation project the DFG commissions or that is carried out on its behalf.
