Reports on Personnel Structures in Collaborative Research Centres and Research Training Groups 2020

As part of the annual surveys in coordinated programmes, the DFG requests data on researchers who are involved in DFG-funded research groups. On the basis of this data pool, the reports focus on three topic areas: distribution according to gender, place of employment prior to joining the group and the funding of researchers involved. The results are considered in differentiated terms.

  • The consideration of developments over time provides an overview of which structures are stable over the five-year period and which are subject to change.
  • Differentiation between the four DFG scientific disciplines highlights differences dependent on the disciplines. The survey data from each reporting year is analysed for this purpose.

The data reported to the DFG by the Collaborative Research Centres and Research Training Groups is incorporated into reports and analyses for DFG bodies, funding agencies (federal and state governments) and the public, as well as into independent analyses of funding practice in these programmes. They form an important basis for the reporting of the DFG.
