ERS funded projects are initiated through two approaches. In the open calls, researchers can submit proposals for funding for all projects in RWTH research areas. These projects should aim at identifying and developing new interdisciplinary fields of research.

The topic oriented calls are for funding projects in fields of research which serve the further development of strategically important research focuses at RWTH Aachen. As a result, profiile areas of the university that have already been established are defined and further expanded.

Calls are published at least eight weeks before the submission deadline in an email to all RWTH professors and on the ERS website.

 

Seed Fund

The seed funding helps researchers pursue new ideas in an interdisciplinary team. The objective is to enable initial publications on the topic and the acquisition of external funding. Projects run for an average of six to twelve months.

Calls are generally published every year. Proposals are submitted via the ERS portal. All proposals that fulfill the formal requirements go through a defined selection process. At the end of the process the ERS selection committee composes a list of nominees to be confirmed by the Rector's Office.

149 projects have been granted from a total of nine calls thus far. Applications for the current call must have been submitted by October 17, 2017.
