The LMU places particular emphasis on the comprehensive and individual support of its young researchers. As part of LMUexcellent, young researchers with doctorates benefit from various funding formats: the Investment Fund, the Young Researcher Support Fund and the KnowledgeTransfer Fund.
With these funding measures, LMU supports young researchers in their career development and in the formation of competitive research profiles.
The investment fund specifically supports the acquisition of third-party funding for innovative research ideas and the establishment of new research fields.
Young Talent Fund
The Young Scientists Promotion Fund improves the career development of young scientists by promoting the independent acquisition of third-party funding.
It offers two funding lines: Start-up funding for preparatory work on a third-party funding proposal, as well as "sabbaticals" to enable applicants to concentrate on their proposal.
Knowledge Transfer Fund
The Knowledge Transfer Fund provides start-up financing for projects that aim to further develop research results into technological, social and economic innovations.
