Funding Office

Around 1990, Deutsche Telekom started working together with leading technological partners, research institutions, and universities in national and EU research funding programs. In this time, the Funding Office has become a central point of contact for the entire T&I division and the entire Group. In addition to its advisory and support work, the Funding Office also ensures transparency and an overview of current Deutsche Telekom involvement in funding projects. The collaborations cover promising areas that are relevant to Telekom (such as 5G, IoT, or SmartCity) and make use of the researchers’ cooperation across disciplinary and state borders. T-Labs can utilize these activities to generate effective impetus for the further development of networks and services and help establish promising topics at Deutsche Telekom.
