Short Description

There is a variety of ways to communicate just how exciting basic research is. As the indispensable originators of this message, the members of the scientific community play a key role in the process. In conjunction with the plethora of FWF activities in the service of promoting the dissemination of scientific insights, the FWF Science Communication Programme is designed to support and enhance the fascination of basic research.


The programme aims at supporting outstanding science communication measures with up to EUR 50,000 per application in order to communicate scholarly content from FWF-supported projects to defined target groups in Austria. This initiative will be a contribution to promoting the best possible ways of communicating basic-research results. In all related activities, scholars need to cater to the participatory character of science communication.


Applications can be submitted by all scholars currently or previously in charge of an FWF-funded project. The completion of said project should not date back more than three years at the time of submission. In terms of its content, the science communication project should be directly related to the content of the underlying research endeavour.


One call for submissions per year; applications need to be submitted in German. In 2017, the call is open until 18 September 2017. It is endowed with approx. EUR 250,000.


Allocation will be decided by the FWF Board in its November meeting – based on recommendations from an expert jury.


Please submit applications in writing and in electronic form to the FWF no later than 18 September 2017 (date of postmark).
