Funding opportunities

Individual Funding

As part of creating optimal conditions for carrying out excellent research, LMU offers individual funding schemes to support its junior researchers. Such funding incluces seed funding for early-career researchers to enable them to apply for grants in order to pursue innovative ideas and establish new research fields, and a travel grant scheme for postdocs that supports academic networking by funding their participation in international conferences.

Professional support services for third-party funding

LMU's custom service portfolio is designed to help academics plan and carry out cutting-edge research projects at our University. Our services range from providing information on sources of funding to advising on legal and financial matters. Our research advisors are always on hand to answer your questions. We offer workshops and individual guidance on specific funding programs, from funding agencies such as the EU, the German Research Foundation (DFG) or the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF), in order to ensure researchers make the best use of the existing opportunities.

Knowledge and Technology Transfer

LMU offers customized services to researchers seeking to translate their research into social and technological innovations. These include giving advice on how to market, patent, and license research findings and assisting with administrative matters when founding a spin-off company.
