To ensure optimal use of your equipment.

Information for universities: Our services are 100% fundable. Do you already receive funding by the DFG? In this case you most probably enjoy a so-called flexibilized funding. That means you can refinance the use of our services through money of your grant if you consider it important to your project. When applying for a new grant, it is even possible to include our services in your application.
