BayFOR- Bayerische Forschungsallianz Bavarian Research Alliance GmbH

Solely excellent research can generate the necessary innovative capacity for universities and enterprises and other stakeholders to persist in global competition. The Bavarian Research Alliance (BayFOR) provides support to European and international consortia within EU fundraising. The minimum requirement for this support is the presence of one Bavarian institution within a proposal.
BayFOR’s core competencies are:
· EU funding programmes for research and innovation
· Scientific Coordination Offices
· Bavarian/National Collaborative Research
· Partner search and networking

Role in the project:
To ensure the overall implementation of the project in an efficient and transparent manner, BayFOR supports the coordinator in the project management for the entire duration of the project. This includes for instance the administrative processing and financial controlling of the project, clarification of financial and legal issues during the implementation, advice on audits and the preparation of the reporting. BayFOR also enhances the impact and outreach of project activities through its large network of international stakeholders from science and industry who are active in the field of research and innovation.
