The tasks of programme support

Since 2009, the "Biomass Energy Use" funding programme has been scientifically supported by the programme with the aim of networking and knowledge transfer. The programme support sees itself as an independent forum and represents the entire funding programme to the outside world. It thus forms an interface between key players from science, business, politics and the press. 

Our approach

We support all projects involved in the programme in particular through:


  • Networking: targeted networking of projects and other actors
  • Transfer of results: preparation and communication of the results to the key players
  • External presentation of the entire funding programme (media and public relations work)
  • Dialogue with science, politics and practice
  • Harmonisation of methods in the funding programme and in the research community


and serves as a general contact for program participants and interested parties. Its own website, publications, press work, topic-specific workshops and regular status conferences are among the numerous publicity activities in the funding programme. Programme support initiates networking activities and makes the work of the projects accessible to a broad public. 

What is not part of the tasks?

The programme support is not involved in the funding advice for outlines and applications, including the evaluation and selection process, as well as the technical and administrative handling of the projects. The project management organisation Jülich (PtJ) is exclusively responsible for this on behalf of the BMWi.
