German U15 is an association of fifteen large, research-intensive German universities founded in 2013. The self-proclaimed aim of the association is the improvement of the framework for science, research, and education in Germany. The German U15 universities are characterized by offering a broad spectrum of disciplines with leading medical faculties. While making up 13% of German universities, the German U15 universities are responsible for 37% of all third-party grants (including 60% of all medical grants), 43% of all doctorates conferred, and are the host universities of 54% of all DFG collaborative research centers. 43% of all Leibniz Prizes awarded went to German U15 researchers.[1]
