doc.funds Programme: Start of 4th Call for Applications

2020-02-17 / 12:00 CET
2020-06-08 / 15:00 CET

Short Description

With the support of the Österreich-Fonds on 17 February 2020 the FWF started the fourth call for applications in the doc.funds-programme.

doc.funds is a programme to promote outstanding doctoral programmes and to consolidate existing education and training structures for highly qualified junior researchers. Applicants can request additional funding for any structured doctoral programme that has been in existence for at least two years. The university (or universities) offering the programme must be clearly committed to providing basic funding, that is, providing all of the necessary infrastructure as well as funds for the on-going operation and institutional anchoring of the programme.

The application must be submitted by the research institution online via the electronic application portal ELANE by 8 June 2020 (2 p.m. Vienna local time). The researchers must complete the application in time for the responsible research institution to approve and release the applications by the submission deadline.

In order to enable international peer review, all applications are to be submitted in English.

The final funding decisions will be made by the FWF Board in early March 2021 on the basis of recommendations issued by the international doc.funds-Jury. The jury’s funding recommendations, in turn, are based on the written reviews received from international experts (three reviews per application) and on hearings to which the most promising applicants are invited. These hearings are scheduled for February 2021.
