8 Mission We contribute to solving grand challenges which face society, science and industry by performing top-rate research in strategic programmes. We research systems of great complexity with our large-scale facilities, cooperating closely with national and international partners. We contribute to shaping our future by combining research and technology development with innovative applied and forward-planning perspectives.

9 2. Helmholtz – Main Characteristics Strategic Programmes Research into systems of great complexity Competence for planning and operating large-scale facilities and scientific infrastructure

10 Research into Systems of Great Complexity GFZ | GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam Global models of the Earth‘s gravity field (GRACE)

11 Research into Systems of Great Complexity DKFZ | Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum GSI | Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung Tumor therapy with precise exposure of „heavy ions“

12 Ice cores as climate archives EPICA – European Project for Ice Coring in Antarctica AWI | Alfred-Wegener-Institut für Polar- und Meeresforschung Research into Systems of Great Complexity

13 Scientific Infrastructure and Large-scale Facilities Scientific infrastructure and large-scale facilities are a… focal point of national and international collaborative research projects nucleus for high-tech development X-FEL at DESY GSI Future Project

14 What is the goal? To improve  Scientific quality  Performance  International competitiveness  Effectivity und efficiency in the use of resources 3. Helmholtz – Basic Reform

15 Helmholtz – Basic Reform Competition and cooperation Programme-oriented funding Science adequate controlling

16 What does it mean? Financing activities (programmes) instead of financing institutions (centres) What is at its core? International strategic evaluation Programme-oriented Funding

17 6 Research Fields 30 Programmes 126 Programme Topics

18 Programmorientierte Förderung A comparative and competitive procedure with several steps: Competition between Programme Topics Programmes Research Fields Programme-oriented Funding

19 Funding by Financing Partners Funding recommendations by Senate Programme proposals by Helmholtz scientists Programme evaluation by international experts Recommendations by Senate Commission Procedure Programme-oriented Funding

20 Requirements for drawing up programmes  Strategic goals and milestones  Prospects of success and contribution due to longer-term development of the research field  Cost and capacity planning  Management structures Programme-oriented Funding

21 Funding by Financing Partners Funding recommendations by Senate Programme proposals by Helmholtz scientists Programme evaluation by international experts Recommendations by Senate Commission Procedure Programme-oriented Funding

22 Scientific Quality  Originality  Competence for realisation of the programme  Relevant scientific publications, prizes/awards, third party funding Evaluation criteria Programme-oriented Funding

23 Strategic Significance Relevance Relation to defined Helmholtz fields of research Cooperation and networking with national and international Partners Innovation potential Promotion of young researchers and equal opportunity Kriterien für die Begutachtung 2 Evaluation criteria Programme-oriented Funding

24 Use of human and financial resources  Appropriateness in regard to the set goal  Programme-specific infrastructure required and need for large investments Evaluation criteria Programme-oriented Funding

25 Financial Controlling Programme Controlling Scientific Evaluation Science adequate Controlling assures scientific quality creates transparency monitors progress enables better process management

26 Wissenschaftsadäquates Controlling Prerequisite Definition of clearly outlined, but flexible goals and specific milestones Principle Precision in planning determines precision of controlling Process Differentiated evaluation of indicators and controlling of milestones attained through progress reports Controlling results as input for scientific evaluation and the centres‘ internal evaluations Science-adequate Controlling

27 First Results as of 2004  More cooperation and competition  Strategic goals and milestones  Distinctive profiles  Enhanced flexibility  Greater visibility

28 Strengthening International Cooperation Helmholtz in Beijing: Dr. HE, Hong Chief Representative Helmholtz Association of National Research Centres Landmark Tower Dongsanhuanbeilu 8, Chaoyang District Beijing Tel: +86-(0) Fax: +86-(0)
