Science is a never-ending drive and so the German science and research landscape also sees itself in continuous motion. It finds itself in a field of tension between preserving the freedom of research and the pressure to produce not only successful basic research but also application-oriented findings that ensure the future viability of our society. This is particularly relevant today, as Germany, as a country with few resources, is dependent on maintaining its lead in knowledge and technology in the future.
Research institutions are confronted with the challenge of integrating new research topics into their existing portfolios at an ever-faster pace without losing their clear positioning or diluting their profile. In addition, a core challenge lies in creating a flexible, lean and customer-oriented administration that supports research in the best possible way and complies with the regulations of public institutions. In addition, university and non-university research institutions compete with private companies for the best talents and must position themselves as attractive employers with attractive and modern career models.
All these challenges are of relevance for research institutions if they want to assert themselves against international competition regarding their financing, which is increasingly characterized by third-party funding and internationally available funding.
