Promoting Excellent Research
The central aim of the LMUexcellent strategy is to create an internationally competitive, state-of-the-art infrastructure that stimulates groundbreaking research. As part of the second funding phase of LMUexcellent (2012-2019), applications for funding from the Investment Fund and the Junior Researcher Fund were invited for the first time in 2012. The call for submissions to each of these schemes has been extended until further notice. The primary focus is on seed funding for the procurement of external funding that will allow academics to pursue innovative research ideas and establish new research fields.
In addition, the call for submissions to the Travel Grants Scheme, a funding instrument designed specifically for postdocs, has also been extended until further notice.
