Funding opportunities

Here are our open calls:

"Life and Health" Research Prize (closed)

The University of Bonn transdisciplinary research area “Life and Health” aims to support highly innovative, transdisciplinary research projects addressing new and relevant questions related to the topics of life and health. With the “Life and Health”- Research Prize we aim to provide impetus and seed funding particularly to novel ideas that cross traditional research boundaries. The innovative and cross-disciplinary nature of the proposal is the most important requirement for funding. We strongly encourage joint applications from two TRA members from two different research fields.          
A continuation of already established projects, or projects well within past research trajectories will not be funded.

Application deadline is September 30, 2021.
