Advice on National Funding and Innovation Funding

Germany has a very diversified research scene. The R&D departments of industry, the universities and non-university research institutions are the driving forces of Germany’s scientific and technological achievements.

Project funding allows public authorities to help set the course in research and innovation policy. This instrument permits a rapid and flexible response to topical issues, new developments, and challenges. Project funding is provided as part of funding programmes or specialized programmes with the objective of achieving a high internationally recognized level of performance in research and development in selected areas. Moreover, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are supported by means of specific funding programmes that are not bound to a special technology.

Project managers support the ministries in the implementation of their research and innovation funding programmes. They advise those seeking funding on all questions concerning project funding and application procedures. In addition, at Project Management Jülich, the Federal "Research and Innovation" Funding Advisory Service is the central point of contact for any questions concerning research and innovation funding by the German Federal Government, the federal states, and the European Commission.
