ZEUSS EU-Service Saxony is an initiative of the Saxon State Ministry for Science, Culture and Tourism and offers support to obtain EU funding under Horizon Europe. We focus on public universities, research institutes and the university of cooperative education.

Our main objective is to enhance the participation of institutions from Saxony in Horizon Europe, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. Furthermore we aim to increase the success rate of Saxon proposals.

ZEUSS offers advice and support from the first notion of the call to the final report of the successful EU project.
