A measure of excellence

This press release is also available in German.

The University of Munich heads the 2006 Funding Ranking compiled by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation). The university's academics received 131 million euros in DFG third party funding between 2002 and 2004, closely followed by the Aachen University of Technology (126 million euros) and the universities of Heidelberg and Wrzburg (105 million euros each). In terms of funding amounts per professor, however, the University of Karlsruhe, which is comparatively smaller, was the clear leader. These are the findings of the DFG's fourth funding ranking, which was presented today in Berlin. With data taken from various funding organisations and state institutions, the 2006 report contains more information about the German research landscape than previous DFG rankings. The report mainly focuses on the 40 German universities that received the highest amount of funding, totalling over 85 percent of all DFG funding during the study period. However, the report also includes other universities and non-university research institutions.

In regional terms, Berlin (325 million euros) and the urban and rural districts of Munich (261 million euros) were particularly strong. The same applies to the region of "Aachen Bonn Cologne", which received a total of 296 million euros during the period of the study. If one also adds the area of Dren with the Jlich Research Centre, this amount rises to 306 million euros. Hannover and Brunswick together received 167 million euros, and "Mannheim Heidelberg Karlsruhe" and "Stuttgart Tbingen Ulm" came to over 250 million euros.

Using data based on direct project funding for research and development (R&D) from federal ministries, in particular the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, Berlin (390 million euros) and Munich (425 million euros) are again the l
