Research Funding - Facts and Figures
This online publication provides a brief look at the findings of statistical analyses on individual funding programmes or selected aspects of DFG funding.
Career Paths in the Emmy Noether Programme and the Heisenberg Fellowship (Richard Heidler – DFG Infobrief 2/2016)
How do the Emmy Noether Programme and the Heisenberg Fellowship affect future careers? This infobrief examines the CVs of over 500 applicants to these programmes from the years 2007 and 2008. The study looks at the chosen career paths and research career stages achieved as of 2015 in relation to the former funding decisions.
Bridges between research and application – a statistical overview of knowledge transfer projects (Susan Böhmer and Anke Reinhardt – DFG Infobrief 1/2016)
Building on previously funded DFG-projects, the DFG offers additional funding for projects fostering the cooperation between science and society. The Infobrief 1/2016 “Bridges between research and application – a statistical overview of knowledge transfer projects” analyses the demand for this kind of funding with regard to the scientific discipline and structure of the projects.
Drivers of Internationalisation: Results from the Evaluation of International Research Training Groups (Richard Heidler – DFG Infobrief 2/2015)
What internationalisation effects are produced by International Research Training Groups? An evaluation study on International Research Training Groups has examined this question using different methods and data approaches. This Infobrief summarises the findings of this study, focusing especially on doctoral researchers, senior researchers and university managers.
Who Applies for DFG Grants? Statistical Trends in Proposal Submission and Applicant Demographics (William Dinkel and Judith Wagner – DFG Infobrief 1/2015)
In recent years, the demand for third-party grants from the DFG has increased significantly. This development is also related to changes in the population of applicants. Using the Individual Grants Programme as an example, this DFG Infobrief examines which applicant groups were progressively responsible for the increase in proposal submissions from 2009 to 2013, and how their submission patterns have changed.
International Mobility in Research Training Groups and Collaborative Research Centres (Anke Reinhardt and William Dinkel – DFG Infobrief 1/2013)
The international mobility of researchers shows in which countries (early career) researchers see potential for their research careers and the extent to which DFG-funded projects offer attractive research environments for researchers from abroad. In this DFG Infobrief, this is examined using the example of two funding programmes, Collaborative Research Centres (CRCs) and Research Training Groups (RTGs).
