city2science offers assistance, individual consultancy, workshops and lectures on strategic funding application processes to German and European partners from universities, public institutions, cities and regions. The main focus of services is the EU Research Framework Program HORIZON 2020 and its successor FP9, as well as national and regional funding programmes (BMBF, ERDF).

All services are based on active networks of European partners from cities, universities, science centers and museums. In addition, the office regularly maintains contacts with scientific organizations in China, South Africa and Russia.

The range of services within EU funding scenarios focuses on the cross-cutting topics “Impact”, “Dissemination” and “Responsible Research and Innovation”, especially in the programs “Societal Challenges” and “Science with and for Society”. In close cooperation with universities, research institutions and non-university stakeholders, city2science develops, supports and coordinates full-range application processes in English and German.

The support services are based on many years of experience in the successful development of funding applications, as well as in the coordination and management of national and European funding projects.
