Strategic Advice by the GRC

Besides promoting individual excellence in the form of GRC fellowships and thus supporting key academic areas, the GRC also directly develops perspectives for the academic direction of Johannes Gutenberg University for the next 5 to 10 years. For example, the executive committee of the GRC advises the departments, the Senate or the university administration, when asked, for the reorientation of available professorships or for the restructuring of institutes.

The GRC has decisively contributed to the shaping of JGU's research profile in the context of the research initiative of the State of Rhineland-Palatinate. The GRC has also supported JGU's proposals for the Excellence Strategy of the federal and state governments.
