Our aspiration: outstanding quality
We aspire to offer talented young academics from around the world the best conditions for research and study as well as an attractive network. To achieve this, we evaluate our funding lines on an ongoing basis and work to improve them with our expert bodies, the International Commission and the Advisory Board.
We also regularly evaluate our program as a whole; the last such evaluation was conducted in 2017 by a Commission under the leadership of Prof. Birgitta Wolff, President of the Goethe University of Frankfurt am Main. In its final report, the Commission described the Elite Network of Bavaria as “utterly exemplary in terms of support for gifted and elite students”. The report also stated: “The Free State of Bavaria has hereby set clearly visible milestones in the academic landscape.”
The overall funding provided to the Elite Network of Bavaria is in excess of €20 million per year.
