Bavarian Research Alliance ­GmbH: Your way to European funding

The Bavarian Research Alliance GmbH (BayFOR) is an organisation whose purpose is to promote Bavaria as a centre for science and innovation within the Euro­­­pean Research Area. It supports and advises scientists from Bavaria and stake­­hol­ders from the private sector on Euro­­­­pean research, development and innovation funds. The focus is directed at the new EU Frame­­work Programme for Research and Innovation “Horizon 2020”.

As a partner in the network for SMEs “En­­­ter­­­­prise Europe Network” (EEN), BayFOR provides specific advice for Bavarian com­­panies – in particular small and medium-­­sized enterprises – which are interested in EU research projects. BayFOR also co­ordinates the joint activities of the Bavar­­ian Research Associations and supports their networking efforts on a European level. The Scientific Coordination Office Bavaria-Québec/Alberta/International within BayFOR provides support for bilateral and multilateral research projects from these regions.

BayFOR is a partner institution in the Ba­­varian “Haus der Forschung” (house of re­­­search) and is being funded by the Ba­­varian State Ministry of Education, Science and the Arts.­
