Funding Focus: Forum

The category ”Forum” also includes funding opportunities that support cooperative research projects submitted by institutions. As research groups or centres, these follow a coherent, medium- to long-term research programme that is linked to the development of core areas or structural development at the applicant institutions. They offer recognisable added value compared with a group of individual projects. The proposal is not required to describe the structure of the planned work in detail with respect to research content, duration or personnel. Evaluation focuses on the scientific quality of the joint research idea and the development of core areas and structural aspects which it intends to achieve.
