The promotion of basic research and application-orientated science is equally important for the Carl Zeiss Foundation. Therefore, we specifically support universities of applied sciences within the context of the “Transfer” funding line.

Funding under the “Transfer” programme line is up to €1 million per project over a period of up to three years.

The applying University of Applied Sciences decides which type of funding is preferred.
Generally eligible are:   
  • Scientific and technical personnel including material resources
  • Large-scale equipment and research infrastructures
  • Networking activities
Funding projects are selected through competition and based on excellence criteria.
The content of the requirement specification for “Transfer 2020”
follows the annual theme of the Carl Zeiss Foundation:
Intelligent solutions for an ageing society.
