Funding of Creative Ideas
Ruperto Carola offers framework conditions for pursuing high-risk research projects that receive little or no funding from established institutions. Through the FRONTIER Innovation Fund and the Central Research Pool, the university has two avenues for advancing such projects until funding can be obtained. The FRONTIER Innovation Fund supports small to medium-size projects of outstanding scientific quality and high innovative potential. In addition to outstanding research projects within a specific discipline, support is also provided to interdisciplinary associations and cooperations with non-university research institutes. Through the Central Research Pool, Heidelberg University primarily supports projects by young researchers to enable them to prepare applications for third-party funding.
