The COVID-19 Pandemic has also an impact on the work of the DFG. Most of the staff at the Head Office are working from home. To limit physical contact, review meetings and other meetings are currently being held digitally.
The DFG tries to ensure that funding activities continue unrestricted. For funded projects, it is aiming to achieve pragmatic, generous solutions. Here we provide ongoing information – for researchers, the media and the public.
