WWTF calls often require societal and economic relevance in addition to scientific excellence. This call provides the opportunity to further explore this avenue. The overall aim of the NEXT call is to help create ideas which show how results from WWTF funded research can be transferred to the next level of exploitation and utilization. A NEXT project should focus on one main transfer activity.

The possibility to apply is only open upon invitation for the WWTF project calls ICT15, CS15, LS16, MA16 and Vienna Research Group Leaders from 2010-2016. A total of € 200,000 are dedicated to this call. WWTF grants a maximum of € 50,000 per project.
