Within the framework of FORscience project funding, the University particularly promotes the acquisition of peer-reviewed third-party funded projects in funding lines with high visibility. This funding is only granted upon application. Applications for support can be submitted to the Vice President for Research with the involvement of the Dean. The amount of funding is always in adequate proportion to the particular visibility of the funded project.

The informal application should contain the following information:

  • funding body and funding programme
  • funding rate (if possible)
  • date of submission of the application
  • application title/acronym
  • planned duration
  • planned project budget
  • desired financial participation of the university
  • justification for the need for financial support from the university

Reasons shall be given as to how the funding increases the probability of approval and/or the contribution to the transfer of results of the research.
