How can we make our region, Upper Lusatia, more attractive? What technological and social innovations can revitalize the local economy? How can skilled workers discover interesting development opportunities and at the same time families find an attractive living environment?
In order to solve these tasks for Upper Lusatia, companies, educational institutions, research facilities and associations have joined forces in the Alliance Lusatia - Life and Technology (L&T).Together, we are developing innovative tools and testing new formats.
The basic prerequisite for applying for funding is membership in the L&T Alliance. After the timely submission of the project outline and the presentation of the project idea in an advisory board meeting, it is examined by the independent advisory board of the alliance on the basis of defined evaluation criteria for eligibility for funding. After successful presentation of the project idea to the advisory board and its recommendation on eligibility for funding, a full proposal is prepared, which is reviewed by the Project Management Jülich (PtJ). The advisory board as well as the PtJ can impose conditions for the preparation of the full proposal in order to increase the fit with the overall strategy.
