How to apply for a new research project

New research projects start with a call for applications that will be published on our website and will be sent to candidates who registered on our crowdsourcing platform via e-mail. Interested candidates are invited to enter detailed information about their previous work and submit an original project proposal addressing the topic of the call. After a first evaluation round, selected applicants are invited to a 5-day innovation boot camp in Heidelberg, Germany. The invitation includes full coverage of travel expenses, accommodation, sightseeing and food for the entire workshop.
During the innovation boot camp all candidates work in interdisciplinary teams under the guidance of experienced mentors on their project proposals. On the final day, all ideas and results are presented in front of a distinguished jury including the top management of the project partner.

What do the BioMed X Alumni say?

At BioMed X we care for the people who work with us. That’s why we also keep in close touch with our Alumni – those who made every single completed research project a huge success.
Their impressions, experiences and lessons learned during their time at BioMed X are the benchmark for the success of our institute. We asked some of our Alumni what they saw as the greatest benefits of the BioMed X’s innovation model and how they benefited from their time at BioMed X.
