Center for Research Strategy and Support

The Center for Research Strategy and Support was founded in July 2017 by joining the Division of Research of the Central Administration and the Division of Research of the Medical Faculty of Ulm University. It provides support and internal funding programs for the research at Ulm University across faculties.

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:

  • Research Infrastructures

    We establish and further develop the research infrastructures of Ulm University, especially through core facilities, large equipment and grant applications for research buildings according to article 91b of the German Basic Law. Furthermore we develop solutions for keeping record of and evaluating our research achievements.
