Decisions on the second round of the Excellence Initiative announced
Date:10/22/2007

ce as well as 27 for institutional strategies. Following preliminary selection in January 2007, 44 full proposals were then submitted for graduate schools, 40 for clusters of excellence and eight for institutional strategies.

The 84 proposals for graduate schools and clusters of excellence were assigned to 29 specialised panels, reviewed by international groups of experts, and discussed by the Expert Commission appointed by the DFG. There were approximately 320 reviewers, about 80 percent of whom came from abroad and about 20 percent from Germany. Evaluations were based on the criteria of scientific quality, interdisciplinarity, international prominence, and the integration of regional research capacities.

The Strategic Commission appointed by the German Science Council was in charge of the eight institutional strategy proposals. Initially, proposals were reviewed locally by groups of international experts. To be eligible for institutional strategy funding, a university must have been approved for at least one cluster of excellence and one graduate school.

The Joint Commission, made up of members of both the Expert and the Strategic Commission, discussed the proposals and evaluation results. The relevant Grants Committee based its final decisions on the funding recommendations given by the Joint Commission.

The graduate schools and clusters of excellence approved represent an even cross-section of the disciplines, with the strong representation of the humanities and social sciences being particularly welcome.
