Call for submit funding applications from the "Dr. Klaus Körper Stiftung "

From now on, there is the possibility of applications for funding from the "Dr. Klaus Körper Stiftung". The GAMM Managing Board has set up a Commission, which decides on the funding applications submitted. Its members include the Treasurer, Mr. Guenther (Wuppertal) as Chairman and Ms. Reese (Aachen), Mr. Conti (Bonn) and Mr. Oberlack (Darmstadt).

According to the purpose of the foundation, applications for financial support of research and development projects in the fields of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics as well as grants for training of young scientists are encouraged. Examples include: support for summer schools, workshops, particularly the GAMM-juniors, junior promotional prizes such as Richard von Mises Prize of GAMM or Dr. Körper Prize for excellent PhD Theses.

Travel grants are not awarded.

Here, the Commission is guided by the following principles:

  • It should be encouraged young scientists under the age of 35 years, which are not permanently employed - the age limit is extended by periods of military and civilian service and the education of children.

  • Applicants should be members of GAMM.

  • The maximum grant amount is generally € 2.500.

Applications for funding through the "Dr. Klaus Körper Stiftung" are in writing or by email to the commission chairman
