Helmholtz Enterprise

Helmholtz Enterprise (HE) is the internal program for spin-offs from the Helmholtz Association and consists of two independent modules, which can be applied for independently of each other. The Field Study Fellowship finances a budget for personnel and material costs for the Helmholtz Centers or their institutes in order to identify customer needs through interviews and market research. The Spin-off Program finances the establishment of start-up teams working at the Center and the implementation of start-up projects. The Spin-off Program also finances externally found team members if required and the expansion of start-up competencies of the internal team, e.g. by participating in entrepreneurship training.

Over the past ten years, more than 100 start-up projects have benefited from the initiative. Of these, more than 70 projects were set up successfully and over 80 per cent of them are still actively involved in business today (Examples).

Coming soon.
