Innovation and funding programmes

We close the gap between research and application: Helmholtz supports knowledge and technology transfer through a variety of programmes. Discover what we have to offer, such as networking meetings for spin-offs, funding for founders and idea workshops for cooperation with industry.

Helmholtz Enterprise

Helmholtz Enterprise (HE) is the internal program for spin-offs from the Helmholtz Association. The overall purpose of the program is to support scientists to work entrepreneurial and start a well-thought-out business.
