With the 1st Young Researchers' Science Day on 27 October 2021, ProTrainU will for the first time award additional funding for innovative research projects.

The researchers of the six best submitted proposals will be allowed to participate in a pitch training and present their research projects to the university public with a 5-minute pitch at the 1st Young Researchers' Science Day.

The two best applications will then be selected by a jury based on the submitted documents and the presentation of the research project and will receive the following funding amounts:
1st  place:    50.000 €
2nd place:   30.000 €

The funding is granted in the form of materials and equipment, assistant staff and/or test person remuneration.
