Advisory Services on Research Support

The Research Promotion Section finds answers to your questions

Are you new to Technische Universität Berlin and looking for general advice on externally-funded research? Do you have an interesting project idea and need University-internal seed funding to prepare your external funding application? Do you have an innovative research idea but cannot find a suitable funding organization or program? Are you preparing your first external funding application? Are you planning a large joint project and need professional support for brainstorming, networking, or organizing the process?

The Research Promotion Section provides you with information and expert advice for all questions relating to national and international funding programs – from the planning phase and application through to the project administration.

Researching with partners outside of academia?

Technische Universität Berlin is committed to promoting and encouraging transdisciplinary projects. This includes examining and pursuing research topics from multiple perspectives together with non-university partners. Whether you already perform transdisciplinary research or are interested in exploring the benefits it offers, you can speak with the Strategic Projects/Transdisciplinarity (Only in German) Team and receive support and guidance.
