Else Kröner Research Schools for Physicians

Funding for a Successful Professional Career as Physician Performing Research: The Else Kröner-Fresenius-Stiftung foundation wants to support the medical faculties and university hospitals in Germany within the framework of group research programmes.
Research at Internal Medicine II Clinic, Uniklinik Freiburg

This programme allows young, extremely talented physicians in scientific fields to have an optimal environment for fostering their research work; to enable entry to a successful professional career as clinician scientist.

The Else Kröner Research Schools for Physicians are an innovative tool in the German funding landscape and are geared to research-intensive university hospitals. The scholars can focus fully on their research project for one to two years and work on a joint subject area within a scientifically excellent research group. An accompanying curriculum also creates an extensive knowledge base and establishes contacts with international experts.

The maximum funding volume per group research programme amounts to €1.2 million for three years, with the option of a second funding period.

Please always take note of our current calls for applications/proposals for this line of funding. You can find them in the menu “Current Topics” under Call for Proposals.
