In 2018, Forschungszentrum Jülich received institutional funding from the Federal and State governments amounting to € 412 million, which represented 58 per cent of total financing, to cover operating expenses and to implement investment measures. In addition, Forschungszentrum Jülich’s third-party funding totalled € 293 million, which represented 42 per cent of the total funding.
Third-party funding consists of the acquisition of international (EU funding) and national project funding, of R&D and infrastructure services (contracts), and of project management on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany and the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia. National project funding includes funding from the Federal government, the State government, the DFG and other domestic bodies.
Financing in 2018 covers all research areas of Forschungszentrum Jülich as well as other statutory tasks. The majority of Forschungszentrum Jülich’s financing comes from public funds. The remainder originates from cooperations with the industry.
In 2018, all four research areas of Forschungszentrum Jülich – Energy, Earth and Environment, Matter and Key Technologies – and their programmes were in the third round of the programme-oriented research (POF III). The full costs are shown below in their percentage distribution.
The full costs of the four research areas amounted to € 408 million in 2018. Below is a breakdown of basic and third-party funding into individual research areas.
Third-party funding per research area is between 19 and 33 per cent. Only third-party funds that are allocated programmatically were taken into account. Further revenues result from project management and from the infrastructure sector.
