    Quantitative research on the science sector

    The science sector has been acquiring great significance for more and more areas of our society. This makes it all the more important for the science system to be structured and funded as advantageously as possible. To an increasing degree, questions regarding the quality and productivity of science and research are being addressed with the help of indicators from which information about quality, the factors that define it, and the factors that bring it about can be derived. One aim of the funding line "Quantitative research on the science sector" is to make even better use of such indicators' value for research on the science system – and, in the process, to develop new indicators where appropriate.

  • Digitale Hochschulbildung

    Research on digital higher education

    How valuable is the role played by online-supported teaching and learning methods at higher education institutions? What added value do they provide, and what technical, didactic and organisational obstacles need to be overcome in connection with them? The funding line "Research on digital higher education" ("Forschung zur digitalen Hochschulbildung"), which was announced by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in February 2016, focuses on higher education institutions' current e-learning practice. In addition, it studies the potential applications of new technical developments from other societal areas.
