Funding applications for international cooperation

Everything starts with a good idea.
Silke Flaßnöcker, professor of architecture at the Faculty of Design, wanted to work with her students in a very practical way. She had a contemporary self-build construction project in South Africa in mind, but was lacking the financing to realise the project. We at the Robert Schmidt Institute contributed our knowledge on grant opportunities to help with the acquisition of funding, resulting in an approved application to the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service). The project was able to take place. Sounds too good to be true? Try out our service and put your international project idea into practice together with us. Our offers are aimed at professors from all faculties.
