New funding database “ResearchConnect”


From 01 February, members of HU Berlin will have access to "ResearchConnect", a comprehensive database for researching national and international third-party funding sources, for their research. The tool offers many useful features, such as extensive filter options, the possibility to save search parameters, to share search results with colleagues, and to subscribe to individual news alerts and monthly bulletins.

To start your search, open the ResearchConnect website, click on "Log in via my institution", type “Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin” (not “HU Berlin”) and log in using your usual HU Berlin credentials. We recommend that you access the “Help” page by clicking on the “?” icon in the main menu and watch the short “How to” videos that are available.

We offer one-hour introductory sessions on the following dates:


  • Friday, 24/02, 14:00-15:00
  • Monday, 27/02, 11:00-12:00
  • Tuesday, 28/02, 14:00-15:00


No registration required. Please use this link to join. The content of all four sessions is identical.
