Commissioner for DFG Affairs

As the DFG's Lecturer of choice, Professor Dr.-Ing. Alexander Popp acts as a local contact person for applicants to the DFG.

In detail, the tasks include consulting

  • in case of doubt. These must not only be included in the application process, but may also arise in the course of application processing by the DFG Head Office or following the DFG Governing Body's decision.


The DFG Delegate takes up criticism and suggestions and informs "locally" about the DFG and its funding instruments.

Problems with the financial handling of a DFG grant: please contact the ZV I.2.3., Lisa Gringmuth.
Consultation in legal questions: please contact the ZV I.2, Thomas Weidner or Manfred Braunigger.
