Our Fields of Activity

  • Research Strategy

    We support the university when it comes to strategic decisions in the area of research, its structural and development planning, international research cooperations and dissemination of research activities.

  • Funding Advisory

    We inform our scientists about national and international funding opportunities (among others the German Research Foundation, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the European Commission and private foundations) for their research projects. This is done by means of personal consulting, through this website (under construction) and through regular newsletters.

  • Assistance with Funding Proposals

    We support, advise and participate in grant applications to public funding agencies, private foundations and industry. We also focus on large collaborative projects and EU grants. Our services include budget planning, general text modules about the university, how the proposed project fits into our research profile and how young scientists and equal opportunities are supported at Ulm University and within the project.

  • Promotion of Early Career Researchers

    We take care of the development and support of research funding programs for young scientists. Currently these are:

    Further support of early career researchers is offered by the Graduate & Professional Training Center Ulm.
