About us

The EU regional office is hosted by Max-Planck-Institut für Biologische Kybernetik, Tübingen.

The office's mission is to promote the participation of Max Planck scientists in European Union and national funded research and related activities. More particularly, it provides:

  • information and expert advice on EU and national funding opportunities, programmes and policies
  • comprehensive assistance with bid preparations
  • backup during the contract negotiation and project management stage
  • help with cost calculation
  • information about trans-national researcher mobility as well as ERC grants
  • advice on strategy and profile building (individual or group)
  • specialised training sessions and career advice for young scientists

On-site consultation at Max Planck institutes in Tübingen and Freiburg im Breisgau is provided on a regular basis as well as upon special request.

Researchers from MPI für Intelligente Systeme should first turn to Dr. Richard Segar.
