SEPTEMBER

Europe and Global Challenges

Deadline: Preliminary Proposal due September 01, 2017; Full proposal due January 27, 2017

One of the major aims of the initiative is to stimulate strong collaboration b e- tween researchers based in Europe and other parts of the world. Therefore, the foundation is looking for research groups-ideally involving not more than four different institutions- from different geographical regions (e.g. Europe and Africa, or Latin America). The majority of the project participants should be working outside European Union countries. The foundations recommend participation of at least one principal investigator from Germany, Sweden, or the UK. . Each research group - ideally involving not more than 4 different institutions - must therefore include researchers from different geographical regions (e.g. Europe and Africa or Latin America). Current problems perceived as "global challenges" comprise a large spectrum of different issues and complex interrelations, from poverty, spread of infectious disease, global warming and water scarcity through to regional conflicts, migration and terrorism. In order to limit the possible number of themes, this call will accept proposals related to the following global challenges:

- Climate change

- Global health

- Terrorism/Radicalization

- Migration

- Social inequality

Depending on the goals and scope of the projects, successful groups will receive between 500,000 - 900,000 Euros in total (gross amount) for up to four years of research. Funds can be provided both for non-personnel expenditure (including travel costs) as well as staff costs. The foundations envisage between eight and ten projects being funded. The Foundation only funds academic institutions, and therefore cannot allocate funds directly to individuals.
