Project Management Jülich

As one of the largest project management agencies in Germany, Project Management Jülich (PtJ) works hand in hand with public authorities in science, industry, and politics. With its expertise in research and innovation management, PtJ supports its clients in the German federal and state governments as well as the European Commission in achieving their funding policy objectives. On behalf of its clients, PtJ implements research and innovation funding programmes that have been tailored to meet their specific requirements and address socio-political needs.

As a largely independent organization, PtJ is affiliated with Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH. In addition to its headquarters in Jülich, PtJ has three more offices in Berlin, Rostock, and Bonn.

In the three business areas of Energy and Climate, Sustainable Development and Innovation, and Research and Society NRW, PtJ integrates national and European funding with the aim of enhancing Germany's competitiveness as a prime location for research and innovation in a common European Research Area.

In June 2020, the two project management organizations resident at Forschungszentrum Jülich – Project Management Jülich and Project Management Energy, Technology, Sustainability (ETN) – merged to become a single project management organization under the umbrella of PtJ.  Together with the TRI division, ETN now makes up the newly established business area Research and Society NRW (FGN). It is within this business area that all the orders for the state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) that ETN and PtJ have been implementing together for many years, including LeitmarktAgentur.NRW, are now being pooled. PtJ is thus in a position to provide the state of NRW with its complete range of services from a single organization. 

With around 1,300 employees, PtJ handles a broad range of topics. Its portfolio covers the entire chain of innovation – from basic research right up to market entry. Above and beyond this, PtJ helps to establish innovations in society.

PtJ works on behalf of the Federal Ministries of Education and Research (BMBF), of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMU), and of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI), as well as on behalf of the states of Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg, North Rhine-Westphalia, and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
