The application deadline for the financial funding from the Innovation Alliance 4.0 have been extended to January 25, 2021.

There are three funding options that you can take advantage of:


Intermediate funding for young female researchers at the postdoctoral qualification level

An increased risk of losing high-potential female researchers at an advanced stage of their career exists if there is a delay to securing further or final funding for research projects. Flexible intermediate funding can stop this from occurring. We are pleased to offer you funds from the Innovationsbündnis 4.0 (Innovation Alliance) to cover the costs of positions in the short term in the case of unconfirmed funding for project completion or for continuing projects.

Student assistants for young female researchers with children

The coronavirus pandemic poses considerable challenges particularly to young female researchers with children.

The aim of support provided by student assistants is to provide more flexibility and to free up time in the schedules of young female researchers in the qualification phase, so that they can continue their research and carry out their duties despite the restrictions caused by the pandemic.

Coaching for young female researchers at postdoctoral qualification level and above

A successful academic career on the path towards professorship not only requires excellent subject-related skills but also involves developing strategies and personal skills.

In terms of their career planning, young female researchers often find themselves in extremely different situations and individual coaching tailored to their needs and provided by a professional coach is an important component in many ways to help them get on the right track in their careers. We are therefore pleased to announce that we can offer you individual coaching sessions using funds from the Innovationsbündnis 4.0 (Innovation Alliance). Further information:
