Is the budget provided as funding third-party funding (“Drittmittel”) or as university budgetary funds (“Haushaltsmittel”)?
Funding is provided as university budgetary funds (“Haushaltsmittel”). As such, the state budgetary regulations and guidelines of the Alliance's institutions apply. Additionally, this means that the German law on fixed-term contracts in academia (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz, WissZeitVG) applies to staff employed as “Wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiter” and these positions come with a teaching obligation (“Lehrdeputat”).
The funds are to be used economically.
