Your NRW Project
We support your NRW project in the Research and Innovation Services

Our Services for Your NRW Project

We provide support services for NRW projects all the way from proposal submission and project implementation to conclusion of your project.  Contact us to discuss your proposal. We look forward to assisting you!


In most cases, the application must be submitted in the name of the university and a signature of the university management is required. Therefore, if you are interested, please contact Dept. 7.1 at an early stage.

Within the framework of the programs funded by the state of NRW, an own contribution is usually requested, which must be borne by the applicants.

Important Information

Please note that separate rules apply to the ERDF.NRW, EIP-AGRI and INTERREG programs and these rules must already be observed during the proposal submission process.

Further information is provided in Circular No. 06/2016.


We would be happy to provide general advice on NRW funding lines and advice based on your individual needs. Project ideas and requests for proposals are sometimes the result of direct conversations with state ministries and are not based on a specific call for tenders. We would also be happy to help you with proposals of this kind.
