Information for committee members
An important part in the decision-making process is played by a number of DFG committees with members who serve in an honorary capacity. After the review, the process is scientifically evaluated by the review board responsible. For proposals for the coordinated programmes, the review panel includes at least one member of a review board. After another formal check by the DFG Head Office, the proposal is passed to the relevant decision-making bodies. For individual grants this is the Senate and then the Joint Committee; for other programmes it is the appropriate Senate and Grants committees.
For more information about the statutory bodies, see the "DFG in Profile" page.
