Information and Communication Technology 2019 is the fifth project call within the Vienna Science and Technology Fund (WWTF) ICT Programme. It invites researchers and scientists at universities and non-university research institutions in Vienna, including those moving to Vienna, who want to conduct a multi-annual (2 to 4 years)  cutting-edge research project in the field of ICT and its application in other fields. Projects should strive to improve the understanding of substantial current scientific research questions (disciplinary, interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary) in the field of ICT with potential medium term economic or social benefit. A total of € 5.5 million will be dedicated to this call. The funding range per project is € 200,000 to € 800,000.

The third WWTF project call within the Cognitive Sciences programme closed on Thursday, April 12, 2018. 55 short proposals have been submitted. These proposals will now be evaluated by the international jury. The invitations to submit a full proposal will be announced in early June 2018.

The pilot project call addresses universities and non-university research institutions as well as scientists in Vienna, including researchers moving to Vienna as a result of this call, that would like to conduct multi-annual (2-4 years) innovative interdisciplinary scientific research projects in the field of Cognitive Sciences.

Proposals must bring together scientists  from two to three different disciplines to advance the understanding of cognition and behaviour in humans, animals and/or artificial cognitive systems. Improving the interconnectedness of different research areas within the call theme is another key element of this call. In total 3 Mio. € are dedicated to this call.

For more information on the call please refer to the CS18 Call Fiche.
