Become a member of ReForm
ReForm offers scientists the opportunity to associate themselves and their projects as pilot projects with the Leibniz Science Campus “ReForm”. For this purpose, it is necessary to apply for membership with a research project that is thematically related to ReForm.
There are two options for membership:
- Scholars provides an opportunity for senior scholars to associate and network with the campus and actively participate in its design.
- ReForum offers an open space for young researchers, opportunities to discuss their own research projects, soft skills training and much more.
In addition, members can apply for a pilot project that offers financial support in the form of travel (academic events, fieldwork) and research grants.

Membership addresses in particular (junior and senior) scientists who wish to associate themselves with the Leibniz Science Campus and participate in the network’s events.
An application is possible at any time. Should the applicants additionally apply for a pilot project, the membership application must be submitted one month before the deadline for the pilot projects. This means by 31 January and 30 July each year.
