With its Plus 3 funding programme, the Boehringer Ingelheim Foundation aims to support outstanding junior group leaders in Germany conducting basic research in biology, chemistry, and medicine.
It enables them to optimally use the productive phase of their first temporary position as research group leaders as a springboard toward obtaining a professorship in an excellent research environment. Approximately 85 % of successful “Plus 3” applicants between 2010 to 2016 have obtained professorships, and more than 40 % of them came from abroad.
