Research Service and Forschungsimpulse

The Research Management Unit sees itself as a hub for all partners keen to make scientific advances. It is the central location for research coordination and aims to consolidate and promote an internationally competitive research culture at KL.

Given the complex and wide-ranging nature of activities, there needs to be a point of contact where ideas can take shape, framework conditions can be defined and future projects can be decided upon. The Research Management Unit promotes the interdisciplinary integration of scientific activities at all KL locations.

Research Service

KL’s Research Service provides support in all matters relating to research funding and advises on applying for third-party funded projects, from sounding out calls for proposals to project planning, application and implementation in line with the guidelines. The Research blog provides an overview of current funding opportunities.   

The Research Handbook is an annotated collection of links that provides a comprehensive overview of KL's resources in the field of research. You will find references to administrative requirements, guidelines and standards that must be observed when conducting research projects at KL. The Research Handbook is a living document continuously updated by the Research Management Unit team. Access to the Research Handbook is via OpenCampus and is only possible with a valid login. If you have any questions about your OpenCampus login, please get in touch with the Research Management Unit team. The Research Handbook is only available in German.

  • Strategic advice on the project application and any issues relating to your research project
  • Searching for suitable cooperation partners
  • Assistance with developing your ideas and proposal checking
  • Assistance with meeting the requirements of the funding guidelines and internal KL guidelines
  • Administrative support with obtaining approval for research projects from the KL rector’s office

If you intend to submit a proposal, please contact the Research Management Unit as soon as possible, at least 2 weeks before the deadline.
