Research and Transfer Services
Please note our information on data protection.
Our team informs and advises you on different funding programmes in the area of research and innovation. We support you to set up collaborative and individual projects, in particular, those of the German Research Foundation (DFG), the federal ministries (e.g. Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)), the European Union (EU), foundations (e.g. Volkswagen Foundation) and the Ministry for Science and Culture of Lower Saxony (MWK). We support you e.g. in finding appropriate calls for your research ideas, in applying for university start-up funding and we assist you with reviews. Moreover, we inform and advise you on the following topics: promotion and support for start-ups and entrepreneurship education; practice offers, recruiting and securing a sufficient supply of skilled professionals; knowledge transfer and innovation management. In order to intensify the networks between science and businesses, we cooperate, for example, in the SüdniedersachsenInnovationsCampus (SNIC) with other higher education institutions of the region and actors in administrations, associations, business support services and the economy. In addition, the EXIST Transfer of Research supports outstanding research oriented projects that involve expensive and high-risk resource development.
