In the past years, members of the IBC2 have been very successful in securing external funding either through initiation of large-scale collaborative projects, through participation in other collaborative program grants, or by applying for individual grants.


IBC2 director Ivan Dikic is the speaker of two large scale collaborative networks: a Collaborative Research Centre (CRC/SFB) on selective autophagy (SFB 1177) and LOEWE program focusing on ubiquitin networks. He has been part of the managing board for the Cluster of Excellence Macromolecular Complexes since 2009, and is part of the local DKTK steering committee. IBC2 scientists lead projects in several other research networks funded through schemes by the German Research Foundation (DFG), the European Commission, the Hessian Ministry of Higher Education, Research, and the Arts (HMWK), and the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP).


The list of current grant providers for ongoing individual projects and fellowships includes the Adolf Messer Foundation, the DFG, the European Molecular Biology Foundation (EMBO), the Fritz Thyssen Foundation, the HFSP, the MJ Fox Foundation, and the VW Foundation. Early career scientists at the IBC2 are encouraged and mentored to apply for independent funding and have obtained numerous competitive grants, some of which are still running, e.g. Emmy Noether Fellowships (Christian Behrends, Anja Bremm, Krishna Rajalingam), PLUS 3 Fellowships (Christian Behrends, Krishna Rajalingam), an ERC Starting Grant (Christian Behrends).
