Prof. Dr. med. Christian Karagiannidis
While as a clinical researcher I was concentrating on subject-specific project contents, UW/H Research Funding accomplished relevant tasks concerning the submission of the application for successful third-party funding. Despite working at a different location, I could absolutely count on their research management and expertise: Research Funding clarified the basic conditions, met the funding institution’s formal requirements and paid attention to economic aspects.
Third-party funding application: “Collaborative research project on portable long-term lung support technology for treating severe COPD (p-ECCO2R)” – Prof. Dr. Christian Karagiannidis
This three-year research project can be implemented by means of third-party funds amounting to half a million euros, provided by the Witten family business Dr. Ausbüttel. The management of the funds was supported by UW/H Research Funding.

For us, the representatives of science-promoting foundations, it was also an important experience to get into direct contact with Witten/Herdecke University. Continuing such information events will surely be of mutual benefit and lead to a better understanding.
