BMBF - FHprofUnt
Collaboration projects of universities of applied science and enterprises are supported in the new programme FHprofUnd, begun in 2007. Its goals are an intensified transfer of technology and knowledge to companies and improved conditions for research-oriented qualification of students and researchers. Research partners from universities and non-university institutions are to be merged into the collaborations along a kind of scientific value chain. Characteristically for the programme is the demand-driven grants philosophy, application-driven research projects, transfer-oriented cooperations and research-oriented qualification.
