Good ideas for groundbreaking research should not fail because of a lack of funds. For this reason, the “Bund der Freunde” has two funding lines to support junior researchers at TUM.
Depending on the size of the organization, the “quick help”-option serves to support junior researchers – for example to enable them to take part in conferences, conventions, or advanced training.
In the course of the board meeting, which takes place in July, the board of the “Freunde der TUM” decides which projects are to be supported, depending on the available funds. Funding can be provided by research grants or by providing non-monetary resources. Every year, the funding projects are presented with posters in the foyer after the annual meeting – and the project managers will gladly explain their projects and the current state of their research activities to interested members of the association.
