Project Approval / Notification of Third Party Funding
After receiving a funding approval decision or signing an R&D contract, various administrative steps are necessary.
- After the funding approval decision arrives, please verify that it agrees with the content of the application so that in the case of discrepancies an appeal can be submitted in time. Afterwards report the third party funding approval (Notification of Third Party Funding).
- Please send the original or a copy of the funding approval notification (including all attachments), a completely filled-out source data sheet, and for federal projects the declaration of acceptance (comes with the funding notification from the federal agency) via the faculty dean or institution leader to:
The Executive Board of Justus Liebig University Giessen
With the notification of third party funding, you are declaring your consent with the terms of the decision. If the cash allocation of funds differs from the truly necessary availability of funds during the project, please clearly note this. If a statement of acceptance is necessary, the president will sign it and forward it to the sponsor. If the necessary address / point of contact are not clearly indicated in the funding approval notification, please note this.
If the funding notification goes directly to the president, the original along with all attachments will initially be sent to you for review.
If you receive the funding approval notification directly from the third party financer (DFG normal procedures, DAAD funding approvals), use the procedures described above appropriately and fill out the declaration of research intent and source data sheet. This procedure applies to signed R&D contracts as well. Please enter the project into the online research report.
- After submitting all paperwork, you will receive an 8-digit project number from Department D 2 with which your project can be processed. Please refer to this project number along with the short name of the project any time you contact the administration with questions.
- Where applicable, inform the liaison lecturer of the financial sponsor about the funding approval.
