To evaluate its past and current activities and to get feedback about planned future activities from relevant stakeholder, HIDA recently launched a survey. The survey was distributed within the Helmholtz Association and the group of the Friends of HIDA. A high response rate of 297 usable responses from all Helmholtz Centers and stakeholder groups provides the basis for important recommendations and feedback. Almost half of the responses came from doctoral researchers, while Principle Investigators of the individual programs or coordinators of the Schools also provided feedback on HIDA's activities to date and possible future developments. Detailed information on the respondents, methods, questions and results, are listed in the corresponding supplementary document. It provides also access to the survey database for more in-depth analysis.
