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.
