Competitive Review Processes

At times, the German Science and Humanities Council also supports the German federal and state governments when it comes to decision-making processes around research and science policy – by managing the preparation or implementation of certain programmes.

Since its inception, one of the core tasks of the Council has been to provide an expert opinion on construction projects in the field of higher education in the states (Länder), and to create a basis for decision-making processes regarding higher education investments for projects jointly financed by the federal and state governments. 

The Council is not always involved in these programmes as a whole and with all its committees.
