"Anhand sog. DRITTMITTEL, die die Wirtschaft den Hochschulen zur Verfuegung stellt, laesst sich die Groessenordnung der industriellen Kontakte einschaetzen. Fuer das Jahr 1998 wurde beispielsweise ein DRITTMITTELVOLUMEN in Hoehe von ca. 114 Mio. Euro erwirtschaftet." I assume they are talking about funds.
