In HMC, project calls are a tool to foster the continuous development of the HMC community. Projects are intended to be interdisciplinary organised and should actively involve the relevant HMC-Hubs. This practice ensures the integration of tools and solutions directly into the platform and the Helmholtz community.
The total budget for HMC projects is 1.2m€/year, financed by the Innovation- and Networking fund. Funded Helmholtz Centres are required to co-finance the respective project by 50%.
HMC plans to issue project calls once a year. The duration of a project can be up to 2 years and the maximum funding requested is 200k€ + 200k€ inhouse matching.
