Funding of eight HEiKA projects in 2021


In the current funding period, innovative cooperation projects are funded in the HEiKA research bridges.

As part of HEiKA - Research Bridges, the Heidelberg Karlsruhe Strategic Partnership promotes small to medium-sized collaborative projects each year, which are characterized by outstanding scientific quality and high innovative potential. Upon selection, the individual project teams are each funded with starting funds of up to € 80,000 for a maximum of one year.

The HEiKA Project Funding has been in existence since 2013 and has since then started annually in January. The corresponding call for projects starts in May of the previous year and usually ends with the selection of the projects in the course of the October.

In the annual call for proposals in 2020, project proposals were again sought that deal with at least one of these five research bridges:  Advanced Imaging Platform (AIP); Functional Materials (FM); Medical Technology for Health (MTH); Particle Physics, Astroparticle Physics and Cosmology (PAC); Synthetic Biology (SB). In October 2020, the Extended Board of Directors selected eight of the 21 submitted project ideas in its selection meeting and approved their funding from 2021 onwards.
