Use innovation potential - sharpen research profiles

The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) supports strategic research and innovation partnerships initiated and coordinated by universities of applied sciences with the open-topic funding measure “Strong universities of applied sciences" - impetus for the region” (FH impulse). Higher research universities for applied sciences who want to expand an existing research focus with high transfer and implementation potential and sustainably sharpen their research profile are funded. Nationwide, 10 universities will receive funding of around 10 million euros for a good eight years until 2025.
