Seed Fund Projects

Seed Funds are a means to promote projects focussing on promising fields of research that are still in their initial phase and not yet ready for third-party funding.

Seed Funds contribute to consolidating already existing core fields and ensuring interdisciplinary cooperation with the engineering sciences. Several state-of-the-art research projects have already been funded, possibly developing into the future top fields of research.

During the Zukunftskonzept JARA-HPC funded 5 Seed-Fund calls with over 1.7 Million Euro for projects lead by scientists from RWTH Aachen and Forschungszentrum Jülich.

The following 5 projects have been funded during the Zukunftskonzept II for a project time of 18 - 24 months with a volume of 125.000 or 250.000 Euro.
