We help stakeholders from science and business to access a range of funding programmes on a national and international scale. In Germany, this includes programmes offered by organisations such as the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft or DFG) and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (known as the BMBF), the WIPANO
funding campaign by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (known as the BMWi) and its Central Innovation Programme for SMEs (known as ZIM
for short). To be eligible for our support with national programmes, our “clients” must have a registered office in Germany.
On a European level, we focus on Horizon 2020, the EU’s framework programme for research and innovation. However, we also work with smaller programmes, such as calls under ERA-Net (a campaign that aims to improve cooperation between European research organisations) and calls in the EU’s COSME programme for improving the competitiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises. Cross-border regional projects are supported by programmes such as INTERREG, a decentralised instrument within the EU’s structural and investment policy.
We advise potential applicants on the opportunities available under these programmes and support the application process if they wish to work with a partner from Bavaria.
