Thematic selection procedure

In the thematic selection process, current challenges in climate protection and biodiversity conservation are usually addressed once a year. Funding priorities for these challenges are then defined, for which project outlines can be submitted. Depending on the funding priority, the funding amount per project can range from 5 to 30 million Euros. The selection process of the projects is in two stages.

In the first stage, the BMU pre-selects promising project outlines from those submissions that meet the mandatory requirements. These outlines are evaluated in detail based on the formal and technical criteria specified in the funding information. Based on the outcome of this assessment,  technical analysis and the budgetary funds available, the BMU decides which project outlines to pursue in the second stage of the selection process.

The second stage of the selection process begins with a notification sent to all lead implementing organisations on the outcome of the initial evaluation. The lead implementing organisations with successful project outlines are then invited to submit a detailed project proposal. The applicable requirements and templates to be used are provided electronically. We recommend that a preparation phase should be planned in advance, to ensure that the project can be optimally aligned with local needs in cooperation with all project partners. The costs for the preparation phase are eligible for funding and will be deducted from the main project’s budget accordingly.

 

The following institutions are welcome to apply:

Non-governmental organisations, commercial enterprises, universities and research institutions from Germany and abroad, implementing organisations in the Federal Republic of Germany, institutions in cooperation countries (including national implementing organisations accredited at international or multilateral organisations) as well as international intergovernmental organisations and institutions, such as development banks or United Nations organisations and programmes.

Governments in cooperation countries are not eligible to apply for IKI funding.

For the following procedures project outlines can be submitted
