Funding Atlas 2015
Published every three years, the DFG Funding Atlas presents comprehensive, subject-by-subject key figures relating to publicly funded research in Germany. In addition to the usual analyses in this report series, the Funding Atlas 2015 includes a special focus on the Excellence Initiative, sponsored by the federal and state governments, thus providing extensive key figures on this important source of funding for German research.


This section provides information and statistical charts on the DFG's budget and on DFG awards according to subject area, programme, etc.



Evaluation, Studies and Monitoring
The newsletter “DFG Infobrief” and quantitative and evaluative studies ensure the transparency of funding activities.
