ZEFFT - Central research funding budget at the University of Wuppertal

In its meeting on 03/ 06/ 2009, the Rectorate approved internal research funding in the shape of a Central research funding budget ZEFFT at the University of Wuppertal.

The design of ZEFFT and its approval rules, criteria and monitoring process were agreed as part of a longer work process as a cooperation between the Commission and the Vice-President for Research, Third-Party Funding, and Graduate Studies (K II and P II).

As a result, the amount of € 550,000 will now be made available to support you in applying for additional third-party funding projects.


Applications are open to professors and academic staff who have completed their doctorates.

The ZEFFT is split into three areas:

  • Structural (funding),
  • Project (funding)
  • EU (funding)

The next deadline for structural and project applications is:
Wednesday, 18 October 2017.

Deviations from deadlines are only permitted in exceptional cases where well-founded reasons are provided.

Such applications must be marked as “urgent applications”.

Please send any applications to the Vice-President for Research, Third-Party Funding, and Graduate Studies in writing or as a pdf file by email to prorektor2{at}uni-wuppertal.de.
