Helmholtz Validation Fund

The Helmholtz Validation Fund (HVF) is financed using funds from the President’s Initiative and Networking Fund. Its mission is to bridge the gap between scientific findings and their commercial applications as well as between public research and private investment. In creating the Validation Fund, the Helmholtz Association intends to minimize gaps in financing and ease the transition from idea to application. The HVF is deliberately kept open to all topics. The projects range from prototypes all the way to (pre)clinical studies.
