DZHK funding management

The funding management department as part of the MDC is responsible for the administrative implementation of DZHK-funding. The German Centre for Cardiovascular Research (Deutsches Zentrum für Herz-Kreislaufforschung (DZHK)) combines the efforts of medical schools and non-university institutes to stimulate innovations in cardiovascular research and thus improve public health care.

Funding is granted on project-basis and relies on the DZHK-provisions as well as the Funding Conditions of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

Meticulous preparation is the foundation for a successful project application and an efficacious implementation of your project idea. The FMM is pleased to assist you in all questions regarding the submission and management of your DZHK-projects.
