[CALL] Weave/OPUS call (Austria-Poland)


Deadline: 15 Dec 2021 (if NCN acts as lead agency)

For bilateral/trilateral joint projects with/incl. Poland (FWF-NCN).

Weave is a bottom-up, cross-European initiative developed by European research funders to support excellent collaborative research projects across borders.

It aims to simplify the submission and selection procedures of collaborative research proposals that involve researchers from up to three European countries or regions. It does this by making proposals go through a single evaluation procedure.

+++ Call opens in September +++

For joint research with Polish research institutions there are two possibilties to submit joint proposals: 

1) under the on-going Weave-UNISONO call, in the case of NCN proposals submitted to the NCN, for which joint proposals will be submitted to and evaluated by one of the foreign partner institutions (Austria, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Switzerland or Germany) acting as the lead agency, in which case the NCN will not act as the lead agency; or

2) under the OPUS call (deadlines!), in the case of NCN funding proposals for research projects performed in accordance with the Lead Agency Procedure and evaluated by the NCN as the lead agency.
