  • H. -J. Block
  • W. Krull


This article briefly presents some of theWissenschaftsrat's recent activities which were (and are) particularly designed to exert an influence on the structural development of German universities,Fachhochschulen and research institutes: Evaluations of research institutes, recommendations on structural changes in the higher education system, and statistics concerning the age structure of professors and the employment prospects for young academics. The focal point will be the question: What has been the impact of the reports and recommendations on higher education and research policies?
