ESQ Open Call Discovery Programme 2018

ESQ will support innovative research and high-risk projects

ESQ will support innovative research and high-risk projects, before they are sufficiently grown and competitive to succeed in established European or national funding schemes.
Since DISCOVERY is targeted at innovation, it accepts the chance of failure if this risk is balanced by the expected gain. 


Who is eligible to apply?

·         All ESQ Group Leaders (see https://www.oeaw.ac.at/esq/home/research-groups/)

·         Postdocs and PhD students in the ESQ groups, provided that their responsible ESQ member signs that the proposed project can be realized in her/his group and
that the proposed project is compatible with existing working contracts.


Deadline of the call?

Applications will be accepted until 15 June 2018.
