Funding Atlas 2015

Published every three years, the DFG Funding Atlas presents comprehensive, subject-by-subject key indicators relating to publicly funded research in Germany. In addition to the usual analyses in this report series, the Funding Atlas 2015 includes a special focus on the Excellence Initiative, sponsored by the German federal and state governments, thus contributing to an interim evaluation of this important source of funding for German research. The reported figures describe changes in relation to Excellence Initiative universities as well as the system as a whole.

Regional profiles and maps depicting them have always been a fixed analytical feature of the Atlas series. In a further development, instead of districts and cities, which are small in area, the Atlas now looks at larger structures in the form of so-called 'spatial development regions'. This makes regional focuses more visible.

The consideration of subject-specific aspects which generally play an important role in the interpretation of research-related key indicators is also expanded. For the first time the Atlas also considers the interdisciplinarity of research.
