Helpful information about:

DFG Anniversary Campaign - “DFG2020 - Für das Wissen entscheiden" - Because Research Matters

With its campaign DFG 2020 - Because Research Matters, the DFG would like to communicate its conviction that research must be free and knowledge-based to the public.

The campaign marks the foundation of the DFG’s predecessor, the Notgemeinschaft der Deutschen Wissenschaft, 100 years ago.

From institutions to individuals, anyone can get involved and take part in the DFG campaign. The campaign can only reach full strength through the support of the DFG members and  several individuals.
