With expertise in research and innovation management, Project Management Jülich supports its clients in the German federal government and state governments as well as the European Commission in implementing their research policy goals with a focus on project funding. The agency thus constitutes an important interface between its partners – striving for a strong German research and innovation landscape within a joint European Research Area.

Founded in 1974, Project Management Jülich today covers a broad range of topics. It combines scientific and structural expertise with administrative competence.

A service provider for research and innovation management, Project Management Jülich supports its public-sector clients with a range of services including innovation and technology analyses, the development and management of funding programs for research and innovation, as well as with specialized and scientific communication.
