Funding, Grants & Competitions

  • ERC Proof of Concept

    Deadline: Tuesday 22 January 2019

    All Principal Investigators in an ERC frontier research project, that is either on going or has ended less than 12 months before 1 January 2019, are eligible to participate and apply for an ERC Proof of Concept Grant. The funding will cover activities at the very early stage of turning research outputs into a commercial or socially valuable proposition. The Principal Investigator must be able to demonstrate the relation between the idea to be taken to proof of concept and the ERC frontier research project (Starting, Consolidator, Advanced or Synergy) in question.

    For more information, see https://erc.europa.eu/funding/proof-concept.
  • Research Innovation and Sustainability Fund

    Deadline: Friday 1 March 2019

    The Research Innovation and Sustainability (RIS) Fund 2019 enables employees to apply for temporary teaching release in order to have more time to write grant applications, or to finish one or more (substantial, strategic) publications so as to strengthen the track record significantly and qualify for a successful grant application in the near future.

    For more information, see http://aihr.uva.nl/content/news/2018/11/ris-fund-kopie.html or contact Simon Speksnijder at .
  • NWO Scientific Meetings and Consultations

    Deadline: Tuesday 31 December 2019
    Full, associate and assistant professors and other researchers with a comparable appointment can submit an application for support for the organisation of scientific meetings or consultations for the formation of new teams and consortia. This funding instrument is open for applications with a research question within or that overlaps with the earth sciences, astronomy, chemistry, computer science, life sciences, physics and mathematics.
  • ERC Consolidator

    Deadline: Thursday 7 February 2019

    Are you a scientist who wants to consolidate your independence by establishing a research team and continuing to develop a success career in Europe? The ERC Consolidator Grant could be for you. You can also apply if you have recently created an independent, excellent research team and want to strengthen it.

  • NWO Vici

    Deadline: Tuesday 26 March 2019

    The Innovational Research Incentives Scheme Vici is an NWO grant for senior researchers. It gives senior researchers the opportunity to build up their own research group, often in anticipation of a tenured professorship. The research group must become structurally embedded in the research institution.

    Submission deadline for the 2018 round (pre-proposals) is 26 March 2019, 14:00 hrs (CET). Closing date for the submission of full proposals is 27 August 2019, 14:00 hrs (CEST).

  • VCLA International Students Awards 2019 in Logic & Computer Science

    The Vienna Center for Logic and Algorithms (VCLA) at TU Wien seeks nominations for the VCLA International Student Awards 2019, in the following two categories:
    · Outstanding Master Thesis Award
    · Outstanding Undergraduate Research (Bachelor) Award

    The annually awarded VCLA International Student Awards recognize authors of scientific works across the wide spectrum of Logic and Computer Science. The award is dedicated to the memory of Helmut Veith, the brilliant computer scientist who tragically passed away in March 2016, and aims to carry on his commitment to promoting young talent and promising researchers in these areas.

  • (New) Call for Nominations: 2019 Alonzo Church Award for Outstanding Contributions to Logic & Computation

    Deadline: Friday 1 March 2019

    An annual award, called the Alonzo Church Award for Outstanding Contributions to Logic and Computation, was established in 2015.The award is for an outstanding contribution represented by a paper or by a small group of papers published within the past 25 years. This time span allows the lasting impact and depth of the contribution to have been established. The award can be given to an individual, or to a group of individuals who have collaborated on the research.

    Nominations for the 2019 award are now being solicited. The contribution must have appeared in a paper or papers published within the past 25 years. Thus, for the 2019 award, the cut-off date is January 1, 1994. In addition, the contribution must not yet have received recognition via a major award, such as the Turing Award, the Kanellakis Award, or the Gödel Prize. While the contribution can consist of conference or journal papers, journal papers will be given a preference. Self-nominations are excluded. The 2019 award will be presented at ICALP 2019, the International Colloquium on Automata, Languages and Programming.
