Project and event funding

Stiftung Charité funds basic and applied science and research, education, as well as the public health system and healthcare.

Stiftung Charité supports innovations at Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin and the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH). Here, the foundation takes advantage of its independence to try out novelties at project level and thus, in the long run, to play a role in developing change at the institution it supports.

Measures are eligible for support that benefit the various areas of the Charité and the BIH. Thus, project proposals can be submitted in the medical and scientific area as well as patient care, and subsidies can be applied for in order to support collaborative ventures with other institutes. Here, the application volume should not exceed 10,000 EUR. Funding of publications and full-fledged research projects is only possible in exceptional cases.

All members of the Charité and the BIH are eligible for the submission of proposals. The application documents can be called up here. By submitting your application you confirm that you took note of data protection information (Datenschutzhinweis) of Stiftung Charité. Applications can be submitted at Stiftung Charité at any time. However, please note the following deadlines:

The Stiftung Charité Executive Board reviews the application and decides on funding; a statement by the Charité or MDC Executive Board or the BIH Directorate can be requested.

The rules of good academic practice and the ethical rules of the 7th EU Framework Program for research apply. The approved funding is paid as third party funding to the institution that has submitted the application; the latter thus becomes the employer of the persons paid with money from Stiftung Charité and administrates the non-monetary resources provided. Furthermore, the Approval Principles of Stiftung Charité that have been sent with the approval apply.
