Scientific Instrumentation and Information Technology

Many DFG funding programmes allow applicants to request funding for instrumentation. Major instrumentation for research at universities can also receive 50% funding from the DFG, while proposals for major instrumentation funded by federal states for training, teaching and clinical care purposes can be reviewed by the DFG.

Major instrumentation proposals are evaluated by the Committee on Scientific Instrumentation and Information Technology in line with technical and academic criteria. For many instrumentation categories and infrastructure measures, statements and recommendations are available.
