The portal features institutes at universities as well as non-academic research laboratories.

Gerit replaces the DFG’s Research Explorer website, which has been discontinued. Unlike its predecessor, Gerit will provide statistical information on individual institutes and universities, detail an institute’s research priorities and include links to job portals. It will also show whether it is possible to receive a doctorate at each of the institutes.
