When you receive notification that third-party funding has been approved, please send it to the Department Research Management and Transfer (D 4.1) or for DAAD-Projects to the International Office (D 1.3). Some providers of third-party funding, e.g. the DFG or national government ministries, send their grant approval to the university administration and/or the project managers, however others do not. That is why it is important that you the D 4.1 that funding has been approved. An employee of the Research Management and Transfer Department or the International Office allocates a reference number for the project and will send you the “Notification of Third-Party Funding” form for your future project. Please complete the “Notification of Third-Party Funding” form, sign it and send it via your Dean’s Office to the Financial Control Department (D 5.3). They will set up a project number and hand the form to the Third-Party-Funding and Management Department (D 4.2).
Once a project number has been assigned the contact person for you in the administration will change to the Third-Party-Funding and Management Department (D 4.2) (Intranet).
An employee of D4.2 notifies you of the cost centre number and takes care of the financial side of your project until it is finished. As soon as you received the cost centre number, you will have your project finances at your disposal, e.g. for personnel recruitment.
If personnel are to be employed for the project, please submit an application for personnel recruitment to the Personnel Administration Department (D 3) (Intranet). Please note that you will need the cost centre number for this.
