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:

  • Only MitOst members can apply for project funding.
  • The project team may include non-members, but at least half of the team should be MitOst members.
  • The project manager and the whole team must work on a voluntary basis.
  • The project should be open for other MitOst members.
  • The project must not produce a financial profit.
  • Usually, the acquisition of external funding is necessary.
