Innovation fund of the Helmholtz Centres

Starting in 2016 at selected Centres, the Innovation Fund (Innovationsfonds) of the Helmholtz Centres shall enable pro rata financing of transfer-bonus systems for researchers and institutes in the Centres through, among other things: execution of internal innovation and development projects, co-financing of Helmholtz-Validierungsfonds projects, and spin-off projects of Helmholtz Enterprise. The budget shall be administered by the transfer points, increasing their legal capacity. Appraisal and selection of the best applications from the centres took place in November 2015.
