Funding Consultancy

K&S identifies European and national funding opportunities
tailored to your project portfolio and R&D agenda.

Benefits by collaborating with K&S

K&S conducts research on relevant funding instruments for you.

The basis is regular research of relevant information chan­nels, including publications and funding an­nounce­ments by our experienced specialists and our funding network.

You concentrate on managing your R&D project portfolio and we provide you with a customized analysis of possible funding options based on your research priorities. You can determine the frequency of the evaluation.

We take care of

  • the continuous monitoring of various information channels (at German federal and state level as well as at European Comission level) for funding announcements and calls.
  • the evaluation of research results based on customer-specific criteria
  • the facilitation of contacts with potential consortium partners, if needed


The path to funding

  1. Selection of a suitable national funding announcement or EU call
  2. Formation of the project consortium
  3. Initiation of the (one or two-stage) application process
  4. Receipt of the funding decision (national) or invitation to conclude a grant agreement (European)



Newcomers in the field of research funding often encouter difficulties, especiall in Step 1. Why is that?

At a first glance, the funding landscape in Germany or of the EU resembles a constantly changing laby­rinth in which one can easily get lost in. To gain a good overview of the relevant funding instruments, continuous monitoring is required. However, this process consumes resources that could be utilized more effectively in your core business activities.

The consequence can be missed funding oppor­tuni­ties as organizations are either mis­infor­med, in­for­med too late, or have no in­for­ma­tion at all about suitable funding possibilities.
