TU Research in Numbers
Technische Universität Berlin’s strength as a research center is demonstrated by the continuous increase in the volume of expenditure of third-party funding. From 2007 until 2016, expenditure of third-party funding more than doubled, from EUR 81 million to EUR 168 million, stabilizing at a high level after reaching a peak of EUR 178 million in 2014.
The most important funder of third-party-funded research at TU Berlin is the federal government, which contributes approximately 32%, closely followed by the German Research Foundation (DFG) with approximately 29%. The proportion of third-party funding from the European Commission amounted to 16% in 2016, while the private sector contributed some 14%.
