The fund supports research cooperation between physicians from the UK OWL, physicians in private practice in OWL and scientists from the Medical Faculty or other faculties of Bielefeld University.

The aim of the research projects is to prepare third-party funding applications in the two research areas "Brain - Impairment - Participation" and "Intelligent Systems - Assistant Interprofessional Networking" as well as the two perspective areas "Microbial Diversity in the Human Habitat" and "Data Science for Medical Care".

The start-up fund is intended to strengthen cross-institution research within the UK OWL and trans-sectoral research.

Here you can find all information about the completed first round of calls and the funded projects. A second call for proposals is planned for summer 2021.

It will not be possible to provide full project funding within the fund, but rather to initiate new cooperation and prepare joint applications for third-party funding.

The kick-off event took place on 17 December 2019. The short profiles of the participants with information on research interests and cooperation possibilities can be found here.
