In response to the outbreak of the pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the German Research Foundation (DFG), a long-standing partner organisation of the FWF, has organised a call for interdisciplinary research into epidemics and pandemics. The FWF has joined this initiative and is funding the Austrian project parts of the German-Austrian joint projects, although the largest share of funding must be requested for the project parts in Germany. This action complements the “urgent funding for research into humanitarian crises” initiative launched by the FWF, which has also been joined by several international partner organisations.

For further details on the FWF’s participation in the DFG initiative, please see the “Information sheet”, which you can download here under “Germany”.
