Berliner funding program for social digital innovations

Do you have a project of your own that you’d like to develop further here in the CityLAB, but you lack the financial means to do so? Apply for our funding program!

What kinds of projects do we support?

We are able to offer this opportunity thanks to a funding line established by the Berlin Senate Chancellery. They are interested in supporting projects that “make a contribution to the fields of digital government, social innovation and/or smart cities, as well as that offer technical solutions for enhancing citizen engagement and participation.” Projects need to have a clearly stated goal that can be realistically achieved within the prescribed time period. Further details for this specific funding line and all of the relevant selection criteria can be found here (for now in German only, if you need help, please get in touch!).

When is the deadline for submissions?

The deadline to be included in the next round of funding is October 27, 2019. The earliest possible start date for projects is January 1, 2020.

What types of costs are eligible for funding?

Eligible costs are personnel costs, honorariums for external contributors, material costs, and travel expenses.

What does the application process look like?

For the first step, applicants only need to submit a completed application form and their projected expenses for the project. Both can be sent to call@citylab-berlin.org.
