Description of institution
The Bavarian Research Alliance GmbH (BayFOR) is a private company founded in 2006 to support Bavaria as a centre for science and innovation within the European Research Area. To achieve this, BayFOR supports and advises Bavarian scientists and stakeholders from the private sector in the competition for regional, national and European research, development and innovation funds. Our focus lies on Horizon 2020. BayFOR’s scientific experts provide subject-specific information and offer strategic advice and active support for initiating projects, setting up international research consortia and submitting proposal applications. Upon successful evaluation, BayFOR is able to provide support during project implementation and if required it provides support with project management and takes over dissemination tasks throughout the project duration. It is a partner institution in the Bavarian “Haus der Forschung” (House of Research).
