Financing and principals

The IfR is financed mainly by raising third-party funds. Here are to be listed above all:

  • Research projects
  • surveys and expert's reports
  • contracts for work

Principals of the IfR were especially research-supporting institutions (VW-Stiftung, Hans-Böckler-Stiftung, Otto-Brenner-Stiftung), besides also public facilities at different levels, organizations, banks and also other research institutes.

Finally (but far less) the IfR is financed by the sales of the written series "IfR regionale trends" and the contributions of the conveyor members.
