Start-up funding for collaborative projects

The Medical University of Innsbruck (MUI) is striving to increase participation and especially the assumption of the coordinator function in cooperative, complex R&D projects to an even greater extent. Applications for such projects represent a particularly demanding challenge in terms of content and administration. Intramural funding is therefore being introduced to provide help – including financially, to scientists with applications for these complex projects in a timely manner and in accordance with the requirements of the funding agency.

Eligibility Requirements:
Those who are eligible to apply include researchers who have a current employment relationship with MUI or who are currently employed by the federal government, have been assigned to work for MUI and whose focus of activity is clearly at MUI at the time of application.
