  • ERC Proof of Concept Grant

    Deadline: Thursday 14 October 2021

    The ERC Proof of Concept Grants aim to facilitate exploration of the commercial and social innovation potential of ERC funded research and are therefore available only to Principal Investigators whose proposals draw substantially on their ERC funded research. All Principal Investigators in one of the main grants are eligible to participate and apply for an ERC Proof of Concept Grant.

  • ERC Synergy Grant

    Deadline: Wednesday 10 November 2021

    The aim is to provide support for a small group of two to four Principal Investigators 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-fertilization 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. The transformative research funded by Synergy Grants should have the potential of becoming a benchmark on a global scale.

  • Helmut Veith Stipend

    Deadline: Tuesday 30 November 2021

    The VCLA invites applications for the Helmut Veith Stipend. The Helmut Veith Stipend is dedicated to the memory of an outstanding computer scientist who worked in the fields of logic in computer science, computer-aided verification, software engineering, and computer security. It is awarded annually to motivated female students in the field of computer science who pursue (or plan to pursue) one of the master's programs in Computer Science at TU Wien taught in English.
