New website presents the Excellence Strategy

www.exzellenzstrategy.de/en as a business card

Excellence Strategy of the Federal and State Governments | Logo

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) and the Wissenschaftsrat (WR, German Science and Humanities Council) have launched www.exzellencestrategy.de/en, a website that is meant to serve as a gateway to the German Excellence Strategy programme. The website is designed to internationally promote the Excellence Strategy, which is funded by the German federal and state governments.

The website provides information on the programme as well as the funded projects and overall strategies. With various links and research options, the website works as an access point to the world of excellence funding in Germany.

To give the Excellence Strategy a recognisable face, the programme also has its own logo which can be downloaded for use in all funded projects and by the funded universities and university consortia. A manual (German version only) regulates its use.

The site's main target groups are higher education management representatives and policy-makers in Germany and abroad. The website is also intended to support funded individuals and institutions in becoming active multipliers.

The site was developed and implemented by MediaCompany GmbH, Bonn. An editorial team of DFG and WR is happy to answer questions about the website.

As before, all information on the application process and the procedure can be found on the corresponding DFG and WR websites.
