EU Research

In 2014, the 7th EU Framework Programme for Research (FP7) was succeeded by the "Horizon 2020" Programme. A total of 95 projects at Ulm University received funding via the FP7, 15 of which were coordinated by the University. The individual projects ran from two to seven years. The total funding for all of the Ulm University projects in the FP7 amounted to an impressive 44,447,768.43 euros. The following projects funded by the European Research Council (ERC) and projects coordinated in Ulm are highlighted as examples of successful EU research.
