BMWK funding

The AiF - German Federation of Industrial Research Associations is an industry-supported innovation network for the promotion of research, transfer and innovation in small and medium-sized enterprises. As a member of the AiF, the DGMK forms a platform for the organisation of pre-competitive projects of the Industrielle Gemeinschaftsforschung (IGF). Several hundred honorary reviewers evaluate the funding applications. Companies accompany the research work and thus ensure its practical relevance. IGF-projects are implemented via the AiF funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection and are available to all interested companies.

In 2021, the DGMK's Processing and Application Division acquired grants from the BMWK amounting to more than 1.6 million euros as part of the IGF competition.
