Information on the Coronavirus Pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic is having an impact on the work of the DFG. The staff at Head Office are now mostly working from home. To limit physical contact, review meetings and other meetings are currently being held digitally. The DFG is doing everything it can to keep funding activities functioning as normally as possible. For funded projects, it is aiming to achieve pragmatic, generous solutions. Regular updates for researchers, the media and the public will be posted here.
