Support for Research

The Office for Research and Early Career Support (Referat für Forschung und Nachwuchsförderung) is the central support facility for national and international third-party research funding. It also provides support for early-career researchers and for university networks as well as international research marketing.  We provide tailored advice and support for the initiation, acquisition and realization of externally funded projects regarding all fields of research. Together with the University Library (Universitätsbibliothek, UB) and the Computing Center (Regionales Hoschulrechenzentrum, RHRK) we support you in research data management at TUK.

The University Library is actively engaged in the field of open access publishing at TUK (providing for free and unrestricted access to research results in the internet). The range of services extends from individual consulting and financial support (DFG publishing fund) to the certified online publication platform KLUEDO.

The Office for Technology and Innovation (Referat für Technologie und Innovation) is the comprehensive service facility at the interface of science and commerce.

 We very much like to advise you personally. In our regular newsletter TUK-Förderinfo für Forschung und Transfer (in German) we inform all members of TU Kaiserslautern about current calls for public third-party funding, as well as awards and events related to science and transfer. Moreover, these databases can provide a first support in identifying appropriate third-party funding options:
