Research Service

The research service of the University of Siegen offers information, advice, support and coaching regarding your research idea and your project proposal. Our services cover all funding programs of the federal and state ministries, the EU in the Horizon Europe framework program, the German Research Foundation, and various other foundations. Personal consultation and close cooperation with the applicants are our top priorities. We offer first-time applicants application coaching on request and accompany you from the project idea to the submission of the application.
