DFG - Research appliances
In accordance with the Major Research Instrumentation Programme as defined in Art. 91b of the German Basic Law, the DFG funds large scientific equipment through its Major Research Instrumentation Programme. Financing is provided in equal parts by the DFG and the university's home state. To be eligible for funding, proposed research instrumentation projects must be of high quality and national importance. The instrumentation must primarily serve research purposes. This criterion is fulfilled if the necessity of the purchase and its usage are based solely on its intended use in research. In addition, the instrumentation may also be used in teaching and/or medical care. These areas will not be considered when assessing the necessity of the equipment.
