Research aided by third party funding can be conducted as primary or secondary employment. A mixed form is legally impossible. In the following cases, third party research projects must be conducted as secondary employment:
If as a member of the project leadership you receive a personal fee or another monetary advantage
If permanently publishing the research results is excluded
If the topic of the research project has absolutely no connection to the field of study you represent.
If the project should or must be conducted as secondary employment, apply through official channels from the president for approval of this, or rather inform him of it, prior to the start of the project.
In the case of secondary employment, both preparation of the contract as well as project development and accounting are to be conducted by you autonomously. Where applicable, you may have to pay a user fee for the utilization of personnel, material, or installations of the university.
