The VdF calls for funding applications for new equipment and replacements in and for the partner sites of BNITM, as well as spare parts exchanges and repairs, if necessary, including delivery, tax and customs duties. Several applications can be funded each year up to a total of € 30,000, or one application for € 30,000.

Please find the call with more details here.

Partner sites are defined as the KCCR and cooperation partners in the countries of the Global South with whom a multi-year cooperation is contractually agreed. The cooperation agreement should regulate the access to the equipment for the BNITM as well as the question of ownership after the end of the project or after the end of the cooperation. The remaining cooperation period with the partner site must usually be at least two years at the time of application.

Applications using this form can be submitted by scientists of the partner sites as well as scientists and guest scientists of the BNITM.

Applications including all relevant documents in one PDF file have to be submitted to by 09.02.2023. Incomplete applications will not be considered. After this deadline, all complete applications will be assessed by the Board of Directors of BNITM and a funding decision is taken by the VdF.
