Information on the coronavirus pandemic

Here we provide ongoing information about the work of the DFG in the context of the coronavirus pandemic– for researchers, the media and the public.

During the coronavirus pandemic, the DFG continuously adjusted its funding activities and took measures to cushion the impact of the pandemic. For example, Corona emergency measures became available for already funded projects, and new funding opportunities were created to address especially urgent research questions requiring rapid answers. An Interdisciplinary Commission on Pandemic Research was established in June 2020. In addition a Senate Working Group convened in July 2021 will also address the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on research activity, individual career paths, and funding actions.
