Ad hoc Review Committee on Membership Applications
The ad hoc Review Committee on Membership Applications is a standing committee of the DFG Senate. It is traditionally designated ‘ad hoc’ because the frequency of its meetings depends on the number of applications received by the DFG.
Its task is to review applications for membership of the DFG. Membership is open to:
- Universities which conduct research of general importance
- Other institutions which conduct research of general importance
- Academies which belong to the Union of the German Academies of Sciences and Humanities, for their academic categories
- Scientific or academic societies of general importance which are conducive to the purpose of the association
The committee advises applicant institutions during the admission process. Article 3 of the DFG’s statutes, which stipulates the conditions for admission into the DFG, serves as a guideline for the work of the committee.
