National Research Funding

Preparing successful research proposals

We advise and support you individually with your national research proposals and offer you:

  • Individual research for project-specific funding programmes and other funding needs, such as conferences or guest researchers.
  • Advise on your research proposal: including obtaining the application documents, identifying suitable contact persons, proofreading the proposals with respect to clarity, and adapting them to the requirements of the funding programme.
  • Support during the proposal phase, particularly for collaborative DFG projects (CRC, CRC/TRR, RTG, Research Units), which must be coordinated with the executive board and require good organisation.
  • Early Career Concept for early stage researchers, in collaboration with other TU institutions: support with the first project proposal, the Agnes-Pockels Fellowship, the PostDoc Career Grant, and information events.
