Bavarian Research Alliance GmbH (BayFOR) - DE

The Bavarian Research Alliance GmbH (BayFOR) is a non-profit private company with headquarter in Munich and further offices in Nuremberg and Brussels. It was instated to support Bavaria as a knowledge-based region for science and innovation within the European Research Area. The company was founded in 2006 by its two associates “Universität Bayern e.V.” (representing all the 11 Bavarian universities) and “Hochschule Bayern e.V.” (representing the interests of all the 20 universities of applied sciences in Bavaria).

BayFOR is funded by the Bavarian State Ministry of Education, Science and the Arts, the Bavarian State Ministry for Economic Affairs, Media, Energy and Technology, and the Bavarian State Chancellery. BayFOR primarily supports and advises scientists from Bavarian universities as well as stakeholders from the private sector (mainly SMEs) on European research, development and innovation funds, with a focus on Horizon 2020.

Its office in Brussels represents the interests of Bavarian stakeholders and directly towards the EU institutions. BayFOR is a partner organisation in the ”Bavarian Research and Innovation Agency”, an initiative of the Federal State of Bavaria fostering synergies with other partner organisations in order to advise Bavarian stakeholders on international, European and national funding opportunities as well as on knowledge/technology transfer, patents and commercialization. As a result, BayFOR is involved in regional networks gathering stakeholders from a great variety of industrial sectors.

Furthermore, BayFOR is a full partner in the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN). This network addresses the business needs of SMEs in the EU and beyond, which brings together more than 600 business support organizations from across 60 countries, including chamber of commerce, technology centers or development agencies.
