KoUP Cooperation Funding was established by the President and Vice President for International Affairs, Alumni and Fundraising at the University of Potsdam as a seed money concept for the promotion of international partnerships. The program’s goal is to pave the way for international cooperative agreements and to work together with partner institutions to develop applications for external funding for research projects.
The Vice President leads a commission that makes decisions about application approvals. Applications that focus on cooperative agreements with previously existing partners will be given preference if the application volume exceeds available funds. Calls for proposals are issued in the December before the beginning of the funding year.
In 2016, the University invested more than € 230,000 in central grants for the development and expansion of cooperative agreements in the priority regions of Latin America, Israel, France, Poland, and Australia. The funding line supports research and teaching, as well as knowledge and technology transfer.
