Forschungscampus FEN is supported with the initiative “Forschungscampus– öffentlich-private Partnerschaft für Innovationen” by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
With this funding initiative, the BMBF supports universities and companies, which are working collaboratively on complex areas of research on a long-term basis. It is of vital importance that those areas possess high innovative potential and societal relevance.
Forschungscampus FEN is one of nine campuses in Germany. Four connected projects are funded with ten million Euros for an initial time period of five years. After the successful completion of the current phase, there is an outlook of another twenty million Euros from the Ministry to extend research in following phases.
