Funding and transparency

University funding typically works as follows: the university funds the salary of the group leader / professor and a small number of PhD students or Postdocs ("small number" typically is something between one and three). Further group members have to be funded by external sources, and it is part of the job of the group leader / professor to acquire such funding.
