BMBF is providing more associations per 1 million euro / Wanka: "This will enable them to continue to invest in networking started."
The Federal Ministry of Education has announced today the 10 consortia from academia and industry that are funded under the project "Zwanzig20" with a focus on East Germany. Federal Education Minister Johanna Wanka has also said her ministry will also support the other nine associations that it had indeed made it into the second round, but ultimately did not come into play.
"We will support these nine projects each with one million euros," Wanka announced at the press conference to present the successful consortia today in Berlin. "This will enable them to continue to invest in the network, with which they have begun to competition Zwanzig20." Wanka and the panel chairman and former DFG President Matthias Kleiner emphasized the quality of the covenants submitted was so high that the choice was difficult for me.
The Zwanzig20 consortia are groupings of more than 1000 partners from science and industry. They were formed across sectors and across national borders. The vast majority comes from East Germany, but the strategic cooperation with West German partners is also required.
