Federal Ministries



Federal Funding Section (Sachgebiet Bund)



The federal ministries play an important role in providing funding for application-oriented research. Funding is available for projects across a broad spectrum of research. Grants are typically advertised through topic-based calls for application. However, there are also various open-subject funding programs. As a rule, such projects are managed by project management agencies.

The Federal Government section is your contact for third-party funding applications submitted to federal ministries as well as contract negotiations. It also provides assistance with legal and financial matters during project implementation. Further information can be found on the intranet at: Federal Funding Section.

Among other services, the Newsletter of the Management of Third Party Funding Division provides you with information on calls for proposals of the federal ministries and on new developments in the areas of project administration.

Furthermore, our division offers a wide range of information and qualification events.
