The ZHM can financially support scientific projects, such as preparatory work for project proposals, over a limited period of time. Generally, joint project ideas of ZHM members are eligible, where at least one applicant must be based at the TUHH or the Hereon. Projects between a ZHM member (in this case TUHH or Hereon) and an industrial partner are also possible. Collaboration proposals conceived by two or more PhD students of the ZHM Graduate School for Materials Science can be supported with up to 10.000 €.

The project idea should relate materials science / materials engineering to one or more of the following strategic topics:

  • Green Technologies
  • Life Science
  • Aviation and Maritime Systems
  • Digitization
