The faculty has established two internal funding programs. These provide scientists with start-up financing in order to be in the position to acquire external funding.
While the START Program does not have a specific topic and is primarily targeted towards junior researchers, the funding in the IZKF Aachen is oriented towards the faculty's research focuses and promotes preliminary work and external funding more. The differences between both programs are summarized in a pdf document available below.
Furthermore, there is also a rotation program at the faculty, which enables junior researchers completing clinical work to conduct research in a lab outside of their main department for a longer period of time.
