Impact Monitoring and Evaluation

Impact Monitoring

We systematically analyse data from the project reports and carry out own surveys to keep informed about the research outputs (and outcomes) of the funded projects. We use this information for an evidence-based assessments of the impact and for the continuous development of our funding activities.

 

 

In external evaluations, independent experts carry out comprehensive assessments of the Foundations objectives, funding concepts, instruments, and procedures of the Foundation.

For the study on perception of research funding foundations by Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Donsbach from the Institute of Media and Communication at the Technical University of Dresden, the most important stakeholder groups of research funding foundations were interviewed: Members of the scientific community, economy, politics, society, and foundations, grant applicants and reviewers of the foundations as well as journalists.

The study "Learning from Partners" is dedicated to the systematic evaluation of the cooperation between foundations and their partners.
