During the proposal phase for the Excellence Strategy in 2018, a total of 88 establishment proposals were reviewed in 32 meetings by 385 reviewers from 31 countries. On the basis of these reviews, the Excellence Commission decided in September 2018 to award funding to 57 Clusters of Excellence. The infas Institute for Applied Social Sciences conducted an online survey of the reviewers on behalf of the DFG to evaluate the programme’s review process. Two-thirds of reviewers responded to the survey, the results of which are presented in this Report.
