The next round is under way – applications for Helmholtz Enterprise can now be submitted to DLR Technology Marketing. It is aimed at scientists, engineers and researchers who already have a specific business idea and are looking to evaluate this idea in more depth as well as prepare for the establishment of a related spin-off.
Helmholtz Enterprise runs for up to 14 months. Completed applications must be submitted to DLR Technology Marketing by 15 March 2020. The deadline for submitting applications to the Helmholtz office (via DLR Technology Marketing) is 5 April 2020.
Helmholtz Enterprise (HE) and the Helmholtz Enterprise Plus (HE Plus) modules provide in-house support from Helmholtz for spin-offs from the Helmholtz Association. Applications may be submitted twice a year – by 15 April and 15 October respectively. The programme builds on the content of the AHEAD programme run by the Fraunhofer Society. More than 100 spin-off projects have benefited from HE over the last 10 years. More than 70 of those projects have led to successful spin-offs, over 80 percent of which are still active in the market today.
Details of the call for applications can be found here (link to HGF website). Please contact DLR Technology Marketing at any time for more information and advice regarding participation in the programme.
