Use Case Initiatives

Attention to all Helmholtz Researchers and interested Industry!

Promising ideas for applied research have the chance of receiving between 20,000 to approx. 50,000 euros in seed funding through Hi-Acts. Every year, the Hi-Acts platform makes half a million euros available for promoting Use Case Initiatives proposed by Helmholtz researchers. In particular, Hi-Acts promotes projects that are developed in collaboration with industry or start-ups and that advance specific applications. So companies are encouraged to put forward their own initiatives or ideas for such collaborative projects and to join us in creating innovations together!

What are the Use Case Initiatives?


Helmholtz partners in Hi-Acts are working in different groups to develop technological and analytical solutions that make accelerators easier to exploit for industrial needs: "Easier to use, with results that are easier to understand, more reliable and less cost-intensive."

One instrument for achieving these goals is the annual call for proposals for Hi-Acts Use Case Initiatives. This seed-funding measure aims to address current challenges facing industrial partners and seek short-term R&D or production solutions.
