Can third party scientists or institutions (outside of the Berlin University Alliance) act as co-applicants and apply for funding?
Third party institutions or scientists, i.e. researchers who are not members (defined by having an employment contract of a minimum of 50% FTE) of a Berlin University Alliance institution, can act as applicants, but are not eligible for funding.
If they want to act as co-applicants, external applicants must state their financial contribution in the application (e.g. by contribution through their own position).
In addition, it is possible to name further external cooperation partners. These do not have to state their financial contributions in advance. However, it is possible to place external orders within the framework of the allocation guidelines for budget funds of the respective Alliance institution. These are to be billed as full costs.
