The HCTS encourages and supports externally funded projects. A number of affiliated researchers have succeeded in acquiring third-party funds. The research projects are funded by various sources, such as the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) or the German Research Foundation (DFG).

In order to further test the potential of the transcultural approach in new fields, the HCTS initialized the programme "Transcultural Forays." Junior and Senior career researchers were encouraged to conceptualize their own project on a topic related to Transcultural Studies and to submit a project application for third party funding to be facilitated at the HCTS.

The Heidelberg Research Architecture (HRA) focuses on digital humanities research, implementation and teaching. It offers project consultation and trainings for researchers and students, and supports digital resource development throughout the whole life-cycle of research data.
