Support for Research at Freie Universität Berlin

Staff members of the research funding support service within the Research Division provide assistance to scholars and scientists at Freie Universität on all issues of research funding and graduate support. They also dispense targeted, specific information on current calls for applicants from organizations and bodies that provide external funding as well as offering demand-based advice on grant programs.

Upon request, the team can review project outlines and full applications to ensure that they meet formal and structural requirements and reflect the required content, that the financial plan is accurate, that the project fits the program, and so on.
