External funding applications
External funding applications for a collaborative project
For funding of a collaborative project (research training groups, research groups, collaborative research centers, or similar research units), please contact the vice dean and Dept. 4 (Dr. Harald Schlüter(harald.schlueter"AT"uni-hamburg.de), Dr. Corinna Prang(corinna.prang"AT"uni-hamburg.de)) as early as possible, since those applications are submitted by the University in consultation with the Faculty. Dept. 4 can provide financial support for the application in agreement with the Faculty.
External funding applications for an individual project
Individual project proposals must be approved by the Faculty if
- the grant is to finance your own position or
- you plan to use Faculty resources.
In all other cases, directly report your project to the vice dean using the external funding notification form (Drittmittelanzeige). After signature by the departmental spokesperson, please send to Nicole Nitschke(dekanatsref.gw"AT"uni-hamburg.de) for signature on behalf of the faculty manager. From there, the notification of third-party funds is usually forwarded directly to Ref. 45 or Ref. 43.
Financial support from the Faculty
Within the limits of available resources and after quality assessment, the Faculty can allocate a maximum of €5,000 for:
- preparing an externally funded project (individual projects);
- setting up a major international conference; or
- projects not otherwise eligible for funding.
In these cases, co-financing is generally expected, e.g., performance-based funding (LOMI), departmental resources. The funds can be used for: student assistants, independent contractor agreements, or in special cases for temporary positions. If there are more applications than funds available, projects are selected based first on quality, then on the possibility of other funding (e.g., W1 above W3 professorships). Proposals in the key research areas have priority.
