The FWF was the first public research funding agency in Europe to establish a nonprofit foundation to provide Austria's researchers with more opportunities in basic research through private grants. The objective of the FWF’s alpha+ Foundation is to create new research grants based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals with a focus on addressing the climate crisis and supporting the careers of highly talented young researchers.
Would you also like to write a new chapter in Austrian research history?
Your donation to the alpha+ Foundation will help support exceptional researchers throughout Austria. The alpha+ Foundation and the FWF handle the entire process, from the call for proposals and the quality assurance of the research projects to awarding the grant.
