Reliable support for researchers.
Exciting research projects require careful preparation. Demanding projects call for thorough resource planning and familiarity with the formal requirements that must be observed when applying for research funding. The University of Bayreuth's Office of Research Funding aims to ensure that your applications and proposals are successful.
We offer scholars of all disciplines extensive advising and support in submitting proposals for their research projects. In addition to national, regional, public, and private sources of financing, our main focus lies on the European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
