Internal start-up financing to coordinate EU projects
The Technical University of Munich awards university funding to those preparing to submit a proposal in order to coordinate projects as part of the Horizon 2020 EU framework program on research and innovation.
An amount of €10,000 can be requested from the university administration through the TUM ForTe international research funding team. Once approved, this start-up financing is issued in two disbursements, regardless of progress on submitting the proposal.
Start-up financing for coordinating EU projects is awarded
- if the applicant contacted TUM ForTe for approval of their proposal at least 6 weeks prior to submitting the proposal, the proposal has been successfully submitted (step 1 if a 2-step process) and no other financial support is secured through third parties (e.g. EuroTech Universities, BayFOR (BayIntAn)), and then in an amount of €5,000;
- the proposal has been reviewed positively (step 2 if a 2-step process), and then in an amount of €5,000.
Please inform the TUM ForTe international research funding team as early as possible of your plans to prepare an EU project in order to ensure optimum support.
