PMU - Research funding

In the area of research funding measures, the Paracelsus Medical Private University offers the following options:

 

PMU Bridging Nürnberg-Salzburg

The aim of the PMU - Bridging Nürnberg-Salzburg is to strengthen cross-location research cooperation between researchers from the two PMU locations in Nürnberg and Salzburg. Primarily, cooperation between the partner clinics and partner institutions at both PMU locations is to be promoted with the help of bridging. In addition, it is also possible to support research consortia between different clinics and institutions of the two PMU locations.

Research projects with a funding amount between EUR 5,000 and 15,000 can be applied for by the corresponding "research teams" from both locations on two submission dates per year. Among other things, the research funding also serves as support for future joint research projects.

A research consortium consisting of at least one principally responsible scientist (PI) from the participating clinics or research institutions (core team) is eligible to apply. Further members from other research institutions are possible. Within the core team, one member is appointed to take over the administrative management of the project. This person becomes the contractual partner of the respective project.

The budgetary share of research should be distributed as equally as possible to the two locations. Deviations are possible if the research content requires it.

The first deadline ends on July 10, 2022, after which all applications will be evaluated by a 6-member review committee (three people per location). The decision will be made by the end of September. The second deadline of 2022 ends on October 15. From 2023, the submission deadlines will be March 15 and October 15.

The total budget for this funding is EUR 50,000 per year per location.
If you have any further questions, please contact brueckenschlag@pmu.ac.at at any time.

The application is made using a template via the R&I online portal, submission is possible from mid-June.

 South Tyrolean Fund for the Promotion of Research at SABES and PMU

One of the core objectives of the South Tyrolean Health Care System (SABES) and the Paracelsus Medical University (PMU) is to establish and further develop a research cooperation. The development and expansion of the research activity is a major priority for SABES and should be based on cooperation projects together with the PMU and other research institutions in South Tyrol (e.g. Eurac Research,
Claudian University of Applied Sciences, Free University of Bolzano, etc.), as well as national and international research institutions. Ultimately, this network should ensure the best possible healthcare for the population of South Tyrol in the future.

The South Tyrolean Fund for the Promotion of Scientific Research (SFPR) is an essential instrument to achieve this goal.

The call for funding by the “South-Tyrolean Fund for the Promotion of Scientific Research” is now open for applications.

Proposals can now be submitted electronically using the electronic submission system of this portal.

The maximum project duration is 24 months. The submission deadline is June 15th 2022, 12:00.
