Research Cooperation

In contrast to the university chairs, which are mainly conducting fundamental research, the Office of Cooperation is also interested in initiating work-oriented research projects. Through an initial funding the Office of Cooperation  is enabled to finance three monthly salaries of an academic assistant, ideas for research projects and the preparation of a research application. All project ideas which draw a clear correlation to the focus of the Office of Cooperation get sponsored.

Furthermore, the Office of Cooperation conducts application-oriented research projects on the basis of third-party funding projects.
