Funding Possibilities at MitOst

MitOst supports its members' project ideas. These projects are mainly financed by our membership fees, however MitOst also cooperates with Foundations and other partners. If you have an interesting idea, we would be happy to support you. The following criteria must be fulfilled:

  • The project manager and the whole team must work on a voluntary basis.
  • The project should be open for other MitOst members.
