Calculate your Research Allowance

Amount of research funding

The amount of the research allowance is 25% of the eligible expenses for R&D projects under FZulG. The maximum limit is €1 million, and the assessment limit is set at €4 million. Eligible expenses are labor wages with ancillary costs, contract research and the sole proprietor’s own contribution (Section 3 (1) to (4) FZulG).

A combination with other funding is possible in principle, but a double funding is excluded. The expenses under Section 3 (1) to (4) of the Research Grants Act may thus not be funded with funds from other grants and subsidies.
