About us

The GSI Grant Office offers support to GSI researches with attracting and managing third-party funding in all project stages:

Information and search for funding programs

You have a research idea and look for suitable funding? Here you find interesting  links to European and national funding opportunities. In our newsletter we inform you about open calls. We offer also individual support and help you finding a funding program that fits your needs. Contact us and send us your research idea using this form.

Preparation and submission of proposals

If you prepare a proposal, please inform us early and send us the filled form.
We are happy to share our experience and support you with writing your research proposal. We help creating a budget plan and make sure you meet the precondition of the respective funding program. If we get the proposal in good time, we offer also proofreading of your proposal.

Contract preparation and project start at GSI

If your proposal is funded, we support you with the contract preparation and coordinate the start of your project at GSI.

Reporting and audits

We do the financial reporting of your project and support handling the funding guidelines.

Furthermore we perform networking and lobbying activities and we help, in close collaboration with the Brussels Office of the Helmholtz Association, promoting the Helmholtz interest in the preparation of Horizon Europe — the next research and innovation programme by the European Commission.

We also coordinate the graduate school HGS_HIRe as well as the R&D program, which fosters the research cooperation of GSI with German universities.
