Election of Members of the 2019 Review Boards

Almost 140,000 researchers were invited to participate in the 2019 review board election between 21 October and 18 November 2019. 38.2 percent of them voted in order to elect their preferred candidate for 632 positions on a total of 49 review boards, resulting in a slightly higher voter turnout compared with the 37 percent voter turnout of the 2015 election. The proportion of female candidates in the newly elected review boards has also increased: It now accounts for 32.1 percent compared with 23.5 percent in 2015.

The final result of the 2019 review board election was ascertained by a notice sent to the DFG Senate on 17 February 2020. It was published on the DFG website on 18 February 2020, and replaced the preliminary election result published there shortly after the election deadline.

The work of the DFG Review Boards

The review boards are made up of researchers from the German research system who perform their responsibilities either in face-to-face meetings or through a written process.
