Logo Research Campus of Central Hessen

The Research Campus of Central Hessen has the goal of strengthening regional collaborations in research and the support of early-career researchers. It creates future-oriented structures focused on promoting cutting-edge research. Flexi Funds are the funding format of the Research Campus to support this goal.

Flexi Funds serve as start-up funding for joint research initiatives by researchers of Justus Liebig University, Philipps-Universität Marburg, and the Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen University of Applied Sciences.

Research initiatives from all disciplines and research areas are eligible for funding through Flexi Funds as long as at least two of the Research Campus universities are involved in the project, one of them being in the lead. The research initiative must have the potential to result in a joint research project with a nationally or internationally recognized third-party funding organization within a reasonable time frame. You can apply for personnel and non-personnel costs. The maximum funding period is two years. Amount and duration of the funds granted depends on the scope of the planned third-party joint research project. 

The total budget for each round is 250,000 EUR.  Application deadlines are twice a year (March 1 and September 1). Applications can be handed in to the Board of Directors via the of the Research Campus.
