The Humboldt Foundation places great emphasis on the evaluation, quality control and reporting of its activities. Evaluation, which is carried out in cooperation with external partners, does not only contribute to transparency and performance assurance but also helps to develop and optimise the Foundation’s programmes.

Since 2006, an independent Academic Council has steered the evaluation of the Humboldt Foundation’s sponsorship programmes. The evaluation of a programme takes about two years. The Council is responsible for monitoring and mentoring the evaluation, developing ideas based on the results of the evaluation and formulating concrete recommendations. The Chairwoman of the Council is Professor Christa E. Müller from the University of Bonn.
