Strategic Advice by the GRC

Besides promoting individual excellence in the form of GRC fellowships and thus supporting key academic areas, the GRC offers strategic advice to the executive university board.

The GRC has thus 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. Even its funding instrument of GRC fellowships is linked to strategic considerations, e.g. with the recruitment of excellent researchers to crucial professorships as GRC fellows.
