Internationality

The European Research Area

Truly successful research depends on international cooperation. The Funding Atlas 2018 shows where Germany and its universities are strong and how important European partner countries are to German research.

The topic of internationality was examined in the 2003 edition of the Funding Atlas, and the 2018 edition is taking a fresh look at this issue with a particular focus on Europe. Data on EU funding in the Horizon 2020 programme illuminates the question of which countries are active in this programme, to what extent, and in which funding lines. Other analyses reveal the countries of origin of prominent researchers who opt to spend a longer period of time researching in Germany. These analyses demonstrate, for example, that alongside Germany, the UK plays a very significant role in European research – indicating the difficulties posed by Brexit for scientific cooperation in Europe.

The data reveals how interconnected the German research system is within the European Research Area. The Funding Atlas also creates a direct comparison of the most important partner countries to German universities in Horizon 2020.
