New website presents German Excellence Strategy

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) and the Wissenschaftsrat (WR, Science Council) present the Excellence Strategy and the funded projects on a new website, which sees itself as a "calling card" for the Excellence Strategy of the German federal and state governments and is intended to raise awareness of the program, particularly internationally.

The aim of the Excellence Strategy is to strengthen Germany’s position as an outstanding research hub in the long term and further improve its international competitiveness. It continues the development of German universities begun with the Excellence Initiative by supporting research of the highest standard, enhancing research profiles, and facilitating cooperation in the research system.

The website Excellence Strategy provides information on the program as well as the funded projects and overall strategies. The website, which is available in German and English, opens a gateway to excellence funding in Germany. The website's main target groups are scientists and stakeholders in science management and policy in Germany and abroad. The website is also intended to support funded individuals and institutions in becoming active multipliers.
