Scientific Controlling (UE-C)

Under the terms of the Academic Freedom Act, which came into effect at the end of 2012, non-university research institutions gained more autonomy and more individual responsibility with regard to their budgets, personnel, financial investments, and the construction of research buildings. This puts them in a position to react faster and more flexibly to current developments. This is accompanied by an obligation to give a transparent explanation of how their funds are used and to carry out scientific controlling.

The information and control systems established in this context have two functions. Firstly, they enable Forschungszentrum Jülich to fulfil its obligation to provide reports to its financial backers. Secondly, they form the basis for strategic decisions on the part of Forschungszentrum Jülich's directors.

Against this backdrop, Scientific Controlling collects key figures on four levels:

  • People: description of the achievements of heads of institute, for example in reappointment portfolios
  • Institutes: portrayal of the activities of an institute in institute portfolios
  • Programmes: presentation of activities within the framework of the programme progress reports
  • Forschungszentrum Jülich: overview of Forschungszentrum Jülich in annual progress reports

In addition, data from existing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems and databases (SAP, TM1, etc.) are evaluated and made available to the Board of Directors as well as the heads of institute. Connected with this is controlling programmatic planning, which is pursued at UE-C. This forms the basis for a targeted use of resources, taking into account the framework conditions of programme-oriented funding (PoF). The aim is to support the Board of Directors in developing strategies for action and to guarantee a strategic focus and setting of priorities at the level of Forschungszentrum Jülich and at institute level.

Furthermore, UE-C is responsible for all of Forschungszentrum Jülich’s key figures. All data published in Forschungszentrum Jülich's internal reports (progress reports, institute portfolios, etc.) as well as in external reports (annual report) is released through UE-C.

Within the framework of investment management, Scientific Controlling is responsible for centralized investment planning within Forschungszentrum Jülich. In particular, this comprises centrally financed investment margins:

  • Expansion investments > € 2.5 million.
  • Investment funds
  • Structural reserve for W3-grade professors

In addition, UE-C coordinates Forschungszentrum Jülich's participation in the process for strategic expansion investments > € 15 million from the Helmholtz Association.
