What is funded? Which costs may be accounted?
Funding is specifically and exclusively provided for preparing a full project application to a third-party funding agency, such as the DFG, a research funding foundation (Stiftung), or another third-party funder.
Funding is provided for projects with material and personnel resources (incl. student assistants), as well as investment funds (excluding construction costs) in accordance with budgetary law and BUA institution’s regulations. However please note that no new personnel can be hired. It is possible to top up contracts of existing staff (“Aufstockung”).
