[CALL] ÖFG International Communication


Deadlines: 7 Jan, 24 March, 9 June, 6 Oct, 10 Nov 2024

For international activities of young researchers (mainly travel costs, etc.)

The research funding program "International Communication" of the Austrian Research Foundation (ÖFG) is an Austria-wide accessible supplement to the financial support possibilities of universities and project funding institutions in providing travel funds for trips abroad and for inviting scientists to Austria.

This program supports the following activities:

§  The presentation of new research findings at academic conferences, symposia or workshops abroad (excluding summer schools and other course based programs with a main focus on training).

§  The organisation of small-scale international symposia or workshops in Austria (excluding summer schools and other course based programs with a main focus on training).

§  Short term stays at research institutions abroad as part of a research project. This stay could be for the purpose of training in specific methods or techniques, or researching materials that are not available in Austria, excluding projects that can only be undertaken abroad on grounds of its contents.

§  The invitation of guest lectures to discussions, talks and similar events that stimulate the academic discourse, excluding lectures. A committee of the Scientific Board of the Austrian Research Association which meets at least twice per semester, will decide on the allocation of the funding.
