Presentation "Five years BaCaTeC" on December 8th, 2005 at the Bavarian State Chancellery (only available in German)
The mission of BaCaTeC is to increase and promote cooperations between researchers, including academic and commercial efforts, located in Bavaria and California. It provides a data basis for the identification of potential partners and assists initial contacts. BaCaTeC will also sponsor projects with seed money to start up new collaborations.
A strong emphasis of BaCaTeC´s activities is on targeting expanding research projects with the potential to attract external funding in the future. Research proposals for collaborative projects by academic and/or commercial Bavarian and Californian institutions will be considered.
The initial funding provided by BaCaTeC will mainly cover travel expenses. Please note that research projects must already have basic funding. The upper limit of financial support from BaCaTeC is € 10.000,-- per project. Requests for larger amounts will only be considered in exceptional cases. The annual deadlines for applications are April 15th and October 15th. Application forms.
