Programmes and calls
Strong research and educational environmentsStrong research and educational environments
All forms of support contribute
All our programs contribute in different ways to environments being able to establish and maintain a strong national and international scientific or artistic position in the long term, which also constitutes a profile area for the university. In this way, the environment can also become a long-term and valuable partner for business.
What is meant by strong environment?
A strong environment has the ability to collectively and long-term develop its research and education in collaboration with business. Prioritization and a joint, well-rooted ambition provide the conditions to establish a strong scientific position and profile with high relevance for business and society.
