In order to provide greater support for the integrative One Health approach, the FWF is expanding access to the Clinical Research program to include projects in veterinary medicine. With the expansion of the program, clinicians from the veterinary field now also have an attractive funding opportunity at their disposal.

The objective is to further increase the quality of research in this field and create new incentives to develop and implement transdisciplinary ideas in cooperation with human medicine. This will also facilitate stronger collaborations between the universities of human medicine and the University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna. The aim is to further exploit the potential in the field of clinical research and to shed light on issues relating to human and animal health as well as relevant environmental factors and their interactions. The expansion of the program creates new incentives to develop and implement ideas together with researchers working in the field of human medicine.

Further information on the Clinical Research program

Funding is provided for projects in the field of clinical research in human and veterinary medicine. The program offers researchers and clinicians the opportunity to conduct clinical studies without being dependent on commercial interests. The studies must involve human or animal patients and/or healthy test subjects or animals and the aim must be to generate new scientific knowledge and insights to improve clinical practice or optimize diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
