Five more ESQ fellowship grants funded by the Research Ministry as well as the European Commission could now be awarded.
ESQ has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 801110 and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research (BMBWF).
Five young researchers won the international and highly competitive third round of ESQ Fellowships, which will allow them to do high-profile research at the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW), TU Wien or the University of Innsbruck for two years each.
At the same time the ESQ Discovery Programme was again advertised nationally asking for applications for innovative research projects including radically new ideas and high-risk projects.
Six researchers won the highly competitive fourth round of ESQ Discovery Projects, which will allow them to do high-profile research at the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW), Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) and the University of Vienna for a maximum of 12 months. The projects that range from research in optomechanics and generic clocks to quantum electrodynamics are funded by a maximum of € 100,000 each.
