The focus of the academic work is on the area of long-term basic research, which usually isn't promoted by other research institutions (German Research Foundation, the Max-Planck-Society, major research institutions or universities). The Academy in Mainz currently oversees, including the third-party funds, over 40 research projects in eleven federal states. The basic equipment, granted by the Land Rhineland-Palatinate, and the common research funding of the academy projects through the federal and state governments archieves together with third-party funds and more than 200 employees, an annual budget of around 13 million euros. Concerning the scientific preparation and the develelopment of the project as well as the supporting of a first measurement project in the church of St. Michaelis in Hildesheim, the Academy in Mainz has worked closely with the Commission for Inscriptions of the Academy of Sciences at Göttingen.
