NWO SSH Open Competition MDeadline: Tuesday 1 November 2022
The SSH OC M funding instrument for free, curiosity-driven research focuses on research projects with a primary social and/or humanities research question.

A maximum of €400.000 can be applied for and the maximum duration of the proposed project is five years.For more information, see https://www.nwo.nl/en/calls/ssh-open-competition-m or contact sgwoc at nwo.nl.
ERC Synergy GrantDeadline: Tuesday 8 November 2022
The ERC Synergy grant is a grant scheme that supports small teams of scientists who wish to jointly address ambitious research problems that could not be addressed by the individual Principal Investigators and their teams working alone. Synergy projects should enable substantial advances at the frontiers of knowledge, stemming, for example, from the cross-fertilisation of scientific fields, from new productive lines of enquiry, or new methods and techniques, including unconventional approaches and investigations at the interface between established disciplines. PIs must present an early achievement track-record or a ten-year track-record. The call will open in July, and has a deadline on 8 November 2022.For more information, see https://erc.europa.eu/funding/synergy-grants.
Marie Curie Doctoral NetworksDeadline: Tuesday 15 November 2022

MSCA Doctoral Networks will implement doctoral programmes, by partnerships of universities, research institutions and research infrastructures, businesses including SMEs, and other socio-economic actors from different countries across Europe and beyond.
