The government grant "Validierung des Innovationspotenzials wissenschaftlicher Forschung" (VIP) of the Bundesministeriums für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF) is part of the high-tech strategy of the federal government. It should support scientists from universities as well as public research institutions, to proof their research results early regarding technical feasibility, the development of new application areas as well as economical potential. VIP should construct a bridge between academic research and economic application. This is the precondition for a successful further development towards innovative technology-based products, processes and services.
