What are EUF’s guiding principles, fields of action, and specific initiatives for research funding and support?

The strategic orientation of the university with respect to research funding is outlined in three strategy papers. Developed in an effort to advance the university’s structural and developmental goals, the papers cover the following topics:

  • The orientation and goals of research funding at EUF
  • The structuring of research funding at EUF
  • Research-oriented application and appointment procedures as part of the DFG strategy

 The focus is on the EUF aim to gain DFG membership by developing into a strong research institution.

The Senate welcomed these strategy papers in November 2019 and approved implementation of the funding approaches and measures within the framework of available resources.
