The Innovation Office supports students, researchers and alumni with developing and establishing start-ups and utilisation projects. We provide assistance with drawing up business plans and applying for funding, e.g. through the "EXIST Business Start-Up Grant" offered by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), or the "Validation of the Innovation Potential of Scientific Research (VIP)" by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Our services include information events presented in connection with university seminars. You can find more information on current developments and specifically about start-ups on the AFO website.
