Organisation of the German Research Foundation (DFG)

The legal status of the DFG is that of an association under private law. As such, the DFG can only act through its statutory bodies, in particular through its Executive Board and the General Assembly. In the course of its history, the DFG has refined its system of governing bodies, thus ensuring that it can fulfil its statutory responsibilities and meet the ever-changing demands in science and research.
