International Research Funding

The TUM ForTe EU Office is the first point of contact for TUM scientists with European and international project proposals.

Advice

Do you have a project idea? Are you looking for a suitable call for proposals? Working in close cooperation with the Bavarian Research Alliance (BayFOR), we give you one-on-one advice on European and international funding instruments (assembling the consortium, drafting your proposal, describing TUM’s complementary services, etc.) and consult with you on strategic issues. We help you to systematically address the specific research and innovation policy aims of individual research instruments.

Newsletter

In our regularly issued newsletter on research funding, you’ll find information on current calls for proposals and funding opportunities at TUM as well as information on national, European and international research programs. The newsletter also contains information on interesting events. If you are an employee at TUM you would like to subscribe to our newsletter, simply send us an email at forte@zv.tum.de or sign up online with your TUM-User name.

Information and Networking

We hold regular informational events on current calls for proposals and funding programs locally here in Munich and Garching. TUM is also actively involved scientific policy discourse in the EU through the Joint Office of EuroTech Universities in Brussels. The office in Brussels provides direct access to a network of contacts and can advise on local contacts.
