Audacity Funds

One of the main goals of the ScienceCampus is to promote the research activities of its members. A particular focus is on supporting innovative and collaborative research projects that span the boundaries between disciplines. For this purpose, the ScienceCampus provides its members with Audacity Funds. The funding period is limited to two years and a maximum of 12,000 euros can be applied for. Audacity Funds are awarded to teams of at least two members of the ScienceCampus who belong to different working groups. The funding can be used for the development of new methodological approaches, for pilot studies in the context of larger projects or in preparation of further funding applications, or for small, self-contained projects.
