Since its founding the SVR has been supported by a consortium, which currently comprises seven foundations. The Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community is funding the Expert Council’s 2020 Annual Report and, in conjunction with the federal states, the 2020 Integration Barometer. The 2020 German federal budget also laid the foundations for the SVR to continue its work as an independent academic committee advising the German government on issues related to integration and migration policy, once the consortium ceases its funding at the end of 2020.
