Funding programmes: developing Jülich technologies into innovations

An efficient approach to funding: These funding programmes link up with different phases of innovative projects and close the gap between the laboratory and the market.

Closing gaps: Funding between research and market

Finding solutions comes naturally to scientists. However, the constant challenge they face is finding the time and resources to secure funding and transform their concepts into market-ready innovations.

At FZ Jülich, we stand firmly behind scientists who aspire to bring their ideas to life and explore the real-world applications of their research. Our innovation management team plays a crucial role in aiding scientists in acquiring funding by refining funding applications and pitches.

Collaborating with FZ Jülich, Helmholtz, the federal government, and the EU, we actively promote knowledge and technology transfer. This involves bridging the gap between research and the market through customized funding programs tailored to diverse project objectives and phases. Our Innovation Management team is committed to streamlining this process and nurturing innovation within the scientific community.
