With this new funding program researchers should be supported in the implementation of cooperative projects between Austrian higher education / research institutions and higher education / research institutions in countries of the global South.
Within the framework of one- to three-year research projects mobility and material expenses for Austrian project partners and project partners from the South are funded. The funding amounts are up to EUR 50,000.- (depending on the duration of the projects).
Projects must contribute to analysing and solving local challenges and to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The programme is open to all scientific disciplines.
Both Austrian higher education institutions/non-university research institutions and higher education institutions/non-university research institutions of a country of the Global South can submit an application. Eligible in the Global South are the majority of Non-European recipient countries of the OECD-DAC list.
