What are

Speedboat projects?

Predominantly privately funded projects scheduled for one to twelve months


So-called speedboat projects are projects lasting between one and twelve months, mainly financed by the private sector, which are carried out to initiate and test the relevance of a research question. The rapid incorporation of new technologies, ideas and trends plays a major role in this process. Ideally, speedboat projects accompany or initiate focus and joint projects. The decisive factor in speedboat projects is the speed from the idea to the project start, which should not exceed one month.
