Summary of key aims

Research grants offered in the individual grants programme are the central form of the research funding provided by the DFG. A research grant can be used to fund staff, scientific instrumentation, consumables, travel as well as most of the other financial requirements of a research project. The DFG requires the institution at which the project will be carried out to supply the necessary core support and resources.

What is the review process for applications?

The quality of each proposal is assessed by peer reviewers selected by the DFG Head Office. The appropriate programme director must ensure that all important aspects of the proposal fall within the expertise of the selected reviewers. Reviewers must be recognised experts in their fields and be capable of giving an objective appraisal of the proposal. The Head Office is careful to avoid conflicts of interest arising from collaboration or competition, teacher-student relations, reciprocal reviews, etc. The DFG solicits statements from approximately 10,000 reviewers annually, from Germany and abroad. DFG reviewers work in an honorary capacity.
