Berlin's senate department for finance regularly publishes data on how the state of Berlin is funding various institutions in the city. The data is accessible through an online database. Users can query who received funding and what amount of money was disbursed to a given recipient. The data provides more transparency on Berlin's funding infrastructure and allows for further analysis and exploration.
Over the last few months, we have been digging through more than 73,000 individual funding awards. The result is a tool for a visual exploratory data analysis, which allows users to filter the data using multiple categories and explore awards from 2009 to 2017. In addition to this tool, we have built this quick visual overview showing which topics received the most funding, as well as other general trends over time.
