EKFZ funds innovative projects in 2nd call for proposals

IIP funds are institutional seed funds designed to quickly build new collaborations and test new ideas of physicians and high-tech specialists. IIPs support the road to a “proof-of-concept” that allows these teams to go on to acquire third-party or industry funds to translate their ideas into clinical practice.

The funding will help to develop a novel generation of tech-savvy clinician scientists on campus within the Dresden School of Clinical Science. Therefore, a convincing commitment of a Clinician Scientist (CS) and the host clinical institution are central to the IIP concept. A full-time lab rotation of at least 18 months for the CS is thus compulsory. The participation of high-tech talents is also very welcome.

The cooperation with the non-university partners of the EKFZ (Dresden Fraunhofer Institutes, Helmholtz Center Dresden-Rossendorf, NCT/UCC Dresden) are highly encouraged as these institutions have pledged additional in-house resources to the EKFZ agenda, that will benefit the IIPs.
