FIT network

FIT stands for "Forschung, Internationales und Transfer" (i.e. research, international info, and transfer). Our database offers you relevant and up-to-date information on these topics, as well as a searchable archive. FIT makes you fit for research!

What is FIT?

The information service FIT was created and launched at the University of Kassel in 2003. Since then, a large network of participating universities and research institutions has formed, benefitting from a regular newsletter and a searchable database of current and past funding information.

Who can use FIT?

The FIT newsletter service is available to researchers whose institution is a member of our network. Check here if your institution has access to FIT, and if so, a one-time individual registration is required for subscribing to the newsletter.

Short & sweet

Our info leaflet for the FIT newsletter gives you a compact overview of what the FIT service includes. Find the German and English versions below.
