The Schering Stiftung and the Fritz Thyssen Foundation offer start-up grants to fund promising research ideas by young scientists. Support is provided for projects in the fields of biochemical, neuroscience or immunological basic research with biomedical implications. The program is explicitly aimed at highly motivated young investigators who want to become independent researchers and pursue their own research ideas.
The Schering Stiftung and the Fritz Thyssen Foundation makes possible research projects of young scientists that cannot be realized with existing funds and resources and for which application for other funding is not possible because of a lack of preliminary research. The start-up grant thus lays the foundations for a subsequent grant application.
Schering Stiftung and Fritz Thyssen Foundation earmarked a total of EUR 120,000 for this grant program. Applicants can apply for up to EUR 60,000 per project.
