Strategic Orientation in an International Context
Research, as an open system, is international. It thrives on the exchange of arguments, ideas and stimuli and on both cooperation and competition, irrespective of national borders. One of the DFG's main responsibilities is to offer the best possible support to international cooperation wherever this serves the interests of research.
The DFG is actively involved in the formulation of international research policy.
