What's the catch with DAAD

Application according to IFG / UIG / VIG Dear Sir or Madam, Please send me the following:

According to the BMBF website, you are one of the sponsors of the annual Falling Walls conference. We would be interested in the annual amount of your funding for this event.

This is an application for file information according to § 1 of the law regulating the access to information of the federal government (IFG) as well as § 3 Umweltinformationsgesetz (UIG), as far as environmental information within the meaning of § 2 Abs. 3 UIG is concerned, as well as § 1 of the law on Improvement of health-related consumer information (VIG), as far as information within the meaning of Section 1 Paragraph 1 VIG is concerned. In my opinion, there are no grounds for exclusion. In my opinion, it is a simple matter of information. According to § 10 IFG or the other regulations, fees do not apply. If, in your opinion, the file information is subject to a fee, I would like to ask you to inform me in advance and to state the amount of the costs. I refer to § 7 Abs. 5 IFG / § 3 Abs. 3 Satz 2 Nr. 1 UIG / § 4 Abs. 2 VIG and ask you to give me the requested information as soon as possible, at the latest after one month. If you are not responsible for this application, please forward it to the responsible authority and inform me about it. I ask for an answer in electronic form (e-mail) in accordance with § 8 EGovG. A reply to my personal e-mail address at my telecommunications provider FragDenStaat.de does not constitute a public announcement of the administrative act according to § 41 VwVfG. I reserve the right to request additional information after receiving your information. I would like to ask you for a confirmation of receipt and thank you for your effort! Kind regards, Marcus Peters <>
