  • Graph: Third-party Funded Research Projects

    The Charité hospitals and institutes participating in Charité Mental Health (CMH) have been able to achieve a significant increase in third-party funding in recent years and have been increasing continuously since 2012. The peak value in 2019 was 29.3 million €, which was available to the scientists for their research projects. Methods: *Unweighted third-party funding income of the Charité hospitals and institutes participating in Charité Mental Health in the period 2010-2019 in million €. CMH researchers from institutes not belonging to Charité additionally achieved 14.2 million € third-party funding in 2019. Image /

  • The cumulative impact of Charité researchers participating in Charité Mental Health added up to 4.071 points in 2019, which represented a top result compared to other universities. Methods: *Cumulative impact factors (measured by means of the Journal Impact Factor) of publications, joint publications were counted once for the calculation. CMH researchers from institutes not belonging to Charité additionally achieved 954 Journal Impact Factor points in 2019.
