The DFG serves all branches of science and the humanities by funding research projects and facilitating cooperation among researchers.
The DFG "promotes equality between men and women in the scientific and academic communities". (DFG Statutes § 1)
The DFG promotes excellence in science and academia and, through its funding programmes, actively encourages diversity and equal opportunities in German research.
