Strategic stand-alone projects
At present, no project outlines can be submitted.
Future calls for funding will be made on the basis of No. 7.1 of the funding framework "Development of Digital Technologies" [BAnz 17.01.2019 B1], whose framework regulations apply.
In parallel to these calls for proposals, proposals for "Strategic Individual Projects" (cf. No. 7.2 of the funding framework "Development of Digital Technologies" [BAnz 17.01.2019 B1]) can be submitted that are thematically outside current or announced calls for proposals. They must be of particular importance for Germany as a business location, especially with regard to the level of innovation and unique selling points. As a rule, these are collaborative R&D projects between industry and science with a duration of no more than 24 months and three to five funded partners.
