Application deadline on June 15th 2017

Startup grants to young researchers that are setting up their own research group. Eligible applicants should have a position connected to a university or institute and have received a PhD year 2011 or later. Applicants can be granted no more than two times. Applicants must indicate if they previously received this grant and provide a satisfactory report to be considered for a second grant. Grants to applicants that have not yet received other support that covers salary and running costs for more than one year are prioritized.

The decision is final and cannot be appealed. Review notes are not distributed.
