This table also appears in the Federal Report on Research and Innovation as Table 14.

1) The regional breakdown of Federal R&D expenditure is based (in most cases) on the main locations of the R&D-performing institutions concerned. In the case of jointly funded research by the Federal Government and the Länder, and in compliance with their agreement on research funding, R&D expenditure has been broken down in accordance with the requirements of the funded institutions. R&D expenditure of the Federal institutions with research and development tasks has been broken down in accordance with the locations of the institutions' headquarters and main branch offices (i.e. offices that are virtually institutions in their own right). The regional breakdown does not reflect the regional impacts of sub-contracts in which funding has been transferred across Länder boundaries. Discrepancies with regard to earlier publications are due to subsequent changes in the allocation to R&D or rather due to subsequent changes of assignments to the Federal Länder.
2) 2009 to 2011, including investment and redemption fund excluding allocations to the Länder (economic stimulus package - Konjunkturpaket II). As of 2011, including "Energy and climate fund". As of 2012, research funding in the area of electro mobility is financed by the "Energy and climate fund". 2016, including future investments.
3) Does not include project funding that was channelled to the new Länder (including Berlin), via a recipient in western Germany (not including Berlin).
4) Slight differences with regard to Table 1.1.8 result from use of more deeply differentiated data for the regional breakdown.
5) Differences with regard to Table 1.1.4 are due to funds that cannot be broken down.
