Looking for Funding for Translation?

The path from the therapeutic idea to the patient or to the start-up is a long and cost-intensive process that requires financial support at various stages.

In the Online Entrepreneurial Forum lecture "EU-Funding Opportunities for Translation", Doerthe Zeese, project manager of “Enterprise Europe Network” at Berlin Partner für Wirtschaft und Technologie and for more than 20 years part of the economic development agency of Berlin, will report on European funding opportunities that support translation and start-ups in the life science sector.

Moreover, Mara Klein, will shortly present the services of Charité’s EU office.

In this online lecture, you will gain insight into the following questions:

  • Which are the most prominent European funding opportunities for translation in the life science sector?
  • What are the requirements as well as the chances of success?
  • Whom can I turn to for support in this regard in the Charité?
