Nowadays you can pave the road with rankings, but not many of them reveal much about how attractive German research institutions are by international standards. The Humboldt Rankings help to close this gap. They count the number of research stays undertaken by the Foundation’s international fellows and award winners at German research institutions. In this newsletter you can find out how German universities have fared and also catch up on all the important news about our current sponsorship opportunities as usual. Happy reading!
