The Digital Humanities Funding Programme of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW)


Through go!digital 3.0 the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW) is continuing its successful programme of funding research projects in the area of digital humanities.


Objectives
The objective of the programme is to further strengthen humanities and, in particular, digital humanities in Austria both with regard to the research landscape and its role in society. The funded projects must deal with clear issues of humanities, social or cultural sciences and explain where the significance and added value of the digital humanities methods applied for that purpose may lie. Relevant funding criteria therefore include: innovation, impact, sustainability, risk awareness from an academic and social perspective.


Target group
The call should address academics and scientists in humanities, social and cultural sciences until up to five (5) years after their final academic degree who wish to carry out interdisciplinary digital humanities projects in the area of basic research. The research project must be carried out at an Austrian research institution (i.e. universities, non-university research institutions, archives, libraries, museums, etc). Applications must be submitted by at least two (2) partners from different research institutions; interdisciplinary cooperation between research and memory institutions is expressly desired here.


Amount of grant
The budget for each of the projects is between a minimum of EUR 150,000 and a maximum of EUR 220,000. A minimum of 10 projects are envisaged. The grant shall cover overheads in the amount of 10% of the direct project costs.


Funding term
max. 2 years


Deadline
Short Proposals must be submitted by 30. November 2021 to: programmmanagement(at)oeaw.ac.at
Preliminary Deadline for Full Proposals is 28. February 2022.
